Penmaenmawr , a holiday resort, always increasing in a well-deserved popularity, about 3 miles W. of Conway. The village is shielded by the two headlands of Penmaenmawr (1500 feet), and Penmaenbach. Though the beach is narrow, it is sandy and the bathing is safe. Boating is popular, and there is a very good 9-hole golf course. Although, as in most of the Welsh coast resorts, the railway runs between the town and the front, the view is not spoilt. Along the front there is a milelong promenade, with pier and pavilion. Penmaenmawr is set in fine walking country. The ascent of the headland, or of the Sychnant Pass, make good walking. From the head of this pass there is a short cut over the moor to Conway. Among many beauty spots there stand out the Fairy Glen, and the Green Gorge, while, behind the town, the Druid's circle is worthy of a visit. There are excellent camping facilities near Penmaenmawr. Altogether this is one of the nicer places for a quiet but busy seaside holiday.
