Conwy Falls is a little harder to find than the other falls in the area.  It is easier to go Conwy Falls cafe, park in their car park and enter through the turnstile gates which cost £1.00 gbp for the entrance.

Stunning waterfall and scenery cafe serving homemade food, using local produce wherever possible. The £1 gains entry to the Conwy Falls and woodland walks.

Conwy Falls is one of the most popular and scenic waterfalls in Snowdonia. The falls are not located near the historic town of Conwy, as the name might suggest, but just east of Betws-y-Coed, in the heart of Snowdonia National Park.
The falls are at the heart of over 9 acres of woodland at the junction of the Conwy and Machno rivers. Footpaths lead through  the woodland, part of which is listed as the site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

As we reached the waterfall around 5.00 p.m. there aren’t any visitors except ourselves and another couples who stayed at the nearby hotel as we were. It was amazing beautiful falls with jutted out formation rocks.  It was so peaceful and serene with beautiful woodland surrounding the falls. There are several trails to follow but we followed the short
trail to the waterfall due to the lateness of the day.

Utterly happy with this visit and thought to bring my friends here the next day, unfortunately they wanted to skip this falls and go straight to Snowdonia.
