Colwyn Bay & Rhos On Sea

Colwyn Bay & Rhos On Sea

Winner of the prestigious Blue Flag award, Colwyn Bay Beach (also known as Rhos-on-Sea beach) is great for swimming, watersports and fishing, with cycling and walking along the coastal track.

Rhos-on-Sea is Colwyn Bay’s genteel cousin.

In fact the big, three mile bay starts at Rhos’ harbour wall, a serene scene of bobbing boats and a beach of sand and shingle that’s guaranteed never to get too busy.

Rhos is known for small things too – specifically the Harlequin Puppet Theatre which is just a stone’s throw from the seafront.

Another ‘mini’ attraction is Rhos Fynach Mini Golf.

It’s crazy golf with a fun nautical theme, with holes that include ‘The Surfboard’, ‘Pirates Skull’ and ‘Submarine’.

Things To Do on or around Colwyn Bay Beach

The sweep of coast from Rhos-on-Sea to Colwyn Bay and beyond has seen a major transformation with new projects and attractions breathing new life into the resort.

The Porth Eirias waterside development is fast becoming a major attraction along the North Wales coast. There’s a new bistro run by Denbigh born chef Bryn Williams and a range of watersport tuition provided by Colwyn Bay Watersports.

The bay - a sweeping sandy crescent looks better than ever!

The pristine new Colwyn Bay Beach, part of the Colwyn Bay Waterfront project, has seen the import of Saharan quantities of fresh sand and the promenade has been refreshed and revitalised.

Local attractions include Eirias Park, and the Welsh Mountain Zoo, and the surrounding area holds many more attractions and activities for the visitor and holiday-maker.
