The town of Llandudno seems impossibly located on the steep slopes where the Cape Peninsula falls into the ocean. A narrow road winds its way past houses that enjoy some of the best views in the country, down to a small car park from where you access the beach. The beach itself is about 600 metres long and nestled in a cove; it is popular with those who know the peninsula well, but you can always find yourself a spot to sit and soak up the sun. A man wonders up and down the beach with a cool box selling refreshing drinks, and there are always a few people surfing. If you’re going to try this, or go for a swim, remember it’s the Atlantic Ocean and even in the middle of summer, it’s going to be very cold!
