Llanfairfechan is a town and community in the Conwy County Borough, Wales. It lies on the north coast on the route of the A55 road, between Penmaenmawr and Bangor. It previously was in Gwynedd (1972–1996) and prior to that was in Caernarfonshire. For ceremonial and electoral boundary purposes it was transferred from the preserved county of Gwynedd to that of Clwyd in 2003. It is known as a seaside resort and had a population at the 2001 Census of 3,755. It has a railway station on the North Wales Coast Line. For electoral purposes, the community of Llanfairfechan consists of three electoral wards, Bryn, Lafan and Pandy.
Morfa Madryn, the salt marsh area immediately west of the town on the shore of Traeth Lafan, is a local authority-managed nature reserve of outstanding beauty and a favourite haunt of bird watchers. The site is home to cormorants and shags. The rare Little Egret can also be spotted.
Llanfairfechan is also home to Bryn y Neuadd, a learning disability hospital, a mental health unit (Carreg Fawr) and a medium-secure unit (Tw Llywelyn). The site, Bryn Y Neuadd, is also home to the control centres for both the Emergency and Non-Emergency Ambulance services for the north.
Translated from Welsh into English, Llanfairfechan means "The Little (or Lesser) Church of St. Mary".
