Pensarn is a suburb of Abergele in Conwy County Borough, Wales. It has a population of around 2,000.

The name Pensarn means 'end of the causeway' in English. The crossing of Morfa Rhuddlan was facilitated by a causeway near the sea, located at this point. This causeway was later flanked by the holiday developments along the coast.

Pensarn is served by Abergele and Pensarn railway station, the A55 and National Cycle Route 5
