Colwyn Bay to be transformed

Colwyn Bay to be transformed

Colwyn Bary Waterfront Project


Colwyn Bay will be transformed into a must-visit destination thanks to new funding for the Colwyn Bay Waterfront Project. The project will enable almost 1km of existing promenade to be transformed by Summer 2017.


The development will see the re-emergence of Colwyn Bay as a tourism and watersports destination for the North Wales coast, complementing the increasing reputation of North Wales as an adventure tourism destination.


North Wales was recently named by the Lonely Planet as one of the best places to see in 2017 with special mention being made to the way the area has been reinvented and repurposed to create a series of truly world class attractions.


The aim is for the work to be complete by Summer 2017.


The first phase of the development which competed in 2014 included the Porth Eirias Watersports Centre, the Bryn Williams@ Porth Eirias bistro and the new family beach, which has enjoyed a significant increase in visitors over the last two summer seasons.


The next phase will now enhance this offer by creating better access to the beach, improving parking provision, and incorporating new landscaping and a marked exercise trail. Areas for temporary concessions will also be created, with the construction of permanent concession building to follow.
