Details

Abergele is the unassuming little town just inland of Pensarn which is Abergele’s seaside arm. It’s a traditional sandy beach with a prom, amusements and cafés. And since it shares the north coast with better-known neighbours, the beach is never jam-packed. If you’re feeling energetic, you can cycle or walk from here on the path westwards towards Colwyn Bay or eastwards to Kinmel Bay.

The hills above the town are studded with Iron Age forts, and it later became a Roman trading town and medieval marketplace. Moreover, Abergele was also home to an important Celtic monastery on a site now occupied by the large parish church of St Michael’s.

It’s a good touring centre for all of North Wales, close to the major resorts and the moors of Mynydd Hiraethog. Wooded hills begin just beyond the town, rising to around 300m/1000ft, with far-reaching views back to the coast. One of the many local walks takes you to Tower Hill (178m/583ft), reputedly an Elizabethan watchtower that guarded the coast against pirates.

Local amenities include a leisure centre with swimming pool and sports hall. Abergele Golf Club is a delightful 18-hole parkland course. Regarded as one of the most picturesque in Wales, it’s also noted for its smooth, dry greens and year-round playability.
