Beach Day

The warm weather definitely makes us feel as though summer is on the way, so why not have a beach day over the Bank Holiday? Pack up a picnic, sunscreen and beach games for a lazy day on the sand. Many of the beaches in North Wales are perfect for families as amusements, fair-ground rides and mini-golf can be found near the beach too when you want a break from the sand! Some beaches are dog-friendly too – though check in advance if a beach will let you bring your pooch with you or if there are restricted areas for them.
