Llandudno’s famed North Shore has regained the proud honour of the Blue Flag status, which identifies Llandudno’s beach to be environmentally sustainable, safe, clean, have good water quality and sufficient facilities to partner the beach.
The North Shore had lost out on the honour in 2011 and 2012 and has been working hard to regain its status, something that can now be told with pride.
The honour ensures that Llandudno can keep its stream of tourists in throughout the year, with the beach being a beautiful area to relax and enjoy Llandudno in a relaxing way. The beach is among many other reasons why people visit the area, so ensuring it is kept in ‘tip-top’ condition is as important as ever.
At the beach awards event, Welsh Government Minister Alun Davies said: “We need to protect our coastline in order to keep up the excellent standard people have come to expect from Welsh beaches.
“I am committed to ensuring that we achieve the highest possible bathing water quality to compliment the excellent facilities and dedicated community work that is needed to meet these standards”
Llandudno boasts two fantastic main beaches – the North Shore and West Shore, that allow you to relax sunbathing, walking, building sandcastles and paddling. For those who want to enjoy North Wales this year, whilst being able to enjoy a combination of Llandudno’s town and seaside resort reputation, make sure you book a trip away in the area. All beaches can be spectacularly viewed and enjoyed,whether you are on the beach, promenade, or at one of many view points across the Great Orme and Little Orme.Aside from Llandudno’s North Shore beach, there were a number of other beaches in the North Wales region that secured a Blue Flag rating, including; Rhos, Colwyn Bay, Llanfairfechan, Penmaenmawr and Abergele & Pensarn. The likes of Sandy Cove in Kinmel Bay and Old Colwyn beach have received awards for being great ‘Resorts’ at the Seaside Awards.
