Winner of a 2018 Blue Flag Award, Colwyn Bay/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

Yes, we know that Colwyn Bay had its heyday as a full-on family seaside resort some time ago. But it’s changing as we speak – and today’s visitors are liking what they hear and find. The bay - a sweeping sandy crescent looks better than ever.

The pristine 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 with the addition of Porth Eirias, home of Colwyn Bay Watersports, a sleek and wood centre with a strong nautical flavour.

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.
