The water is always moving, never the same. The waves seem to make eager haste to caress sand and leave a fringe of lace on the shore. Constantly amending its mysterious majesty, no description can truly capture the beauty of the sea, yet it inspires for miles. This is the Victorian Promenade.
The expansive span of sand, shingle and rock extends for 2 miles in a graceful curve between the Little Orme and the Great Orme. It is separated from the road by small walls and rows of benches and flowerbeds. It is very rich in lime thus supports a vast share of botanical rarities.
It is also the haven for rare species of birds such as the cormorants, shags, and numerous gulls. The entire stretch is clean and very well maintained. This promenade is an all age joy.
