Llandudno has historically been a seaside resort town and all the attractions which have brought visitors here since the mid 19th century are now complimented by an ever-growing range of activities and places of interests in the surrounding area.
In recent years Llandudno's West Shore, Pen Morfa, has become a mecca for extreme sports enthusiasts enjoying high speed kite buggying, and performing fantastic stunts. The West Shore is probably Britain's best beach for kite surfing and Turbulence have established an annual 'Kitejam' bringing competing 'kiters' from across Britain and beyond. picture courtesy of UK Kiting

Many visitors enjoy the magnificent scenery with a two and a half hour walk around the Orme along Marine Drive, breaking for refreshments at the aptly named 'Rest and be Thankful Cafe'.
