Colwyn Bay is undergoing major redevelopment, which has already seen the seawalls and sea defences shorn up and improved following the completion of the second stage of a multi-million pound redevelopment plan.
Once the redevelopment is complete, the area will feature a mile long strip of beach, as well as improved pedestrian areas, and a redeveloped promenade. The project itself covers a length of the Bay that is more than 2 miles long, and requires the dredging of thousands of tonnes of sand in order to create the beaches that will form the main focus of the regenerated area.
Even though the current plans for Colwyn Bay are not due to be completed until 2016, there is still plenty for visitors to do, and it is already possible to enjoy some of the benefits that the heavy financial investment has seen. Whether you are planning a trip to North Wales with the family, for a romantic break, or to enjoy an adventurous trip with friends, you can find something for everybody in and around the area.
At PorthEirias, you will find a community water sports centre, offering a vast range of activities for visitors including tuition in sailing and windsurfing, kayaking and powerboating. Although you may be tempted to leave a visit until summer, some of the best water conditions are found out of the height of season, providing better waves for windsurfing and quieter waters for kayaking and canoeing. Book in advance, take a group of people, and enjoy the water in a variety of different ways.
TheatrColwyn is more than 100 years old, and despite having a rich heritage and long history, visitors will soon be able to enjoy some of the most advanced and recent developments in cinema and theatre, with the addition and use of digital cinema screens. As well as showing a range of films, both modern and classic, the theatre also features live shows put on by local theatre groups and some that are performed by national groups too. If you enjoy taking in a show, or you want to take the children to see a film and keep them quiet for a couple of hours, then there is no greater place to visit.
Although also very popular with the kids, the Welsh Mountain Zoo will prove popular with animal and nature lovers of all ages. Whether you love penguins, lemurs, sea lions, or you want to discover animals that you have never seen before, pay the zoo a visit. What’s more, the zoo sits above Colwyn Bay, giving some of the most breath taking panoramic views and offering an incredible way to see some of the best looking and most natural ways to view the area.
Colwyn Bay is an area of stunning natural beauty, and whether you enjoy getting wet yourself and taking part in a range of watersports, or you would rather take in a show, watch a film, or see a collection of unusual, exotic, and even endangered species, there is something for everyone in the surrounding area.
