More Information...

Rhos-on-Sea sits on the edge of the three miles of Colwyn Bay. From here there are great views along the sweeping coast towards Rhyl and Prestatyn. The little beach here is a mix of sand and shingle that sits within an offshore breakwater which forms a small harbour. The water here is clean and safe for bathing with a seasonal lifeguard service in operation. The beach here was known locally as the Rhos Abbey Hotel beach. However, the hotel which dominated the north-west end of the bay from 1898 was demolished in 2001 and replaced with a block of flats. Behind the beach is a promenade with the town beyond offering plenty of facilities - a pleasant spot to take an afternoon stroll, taking in the shops, cafes and kiosks. As well as a range of sea birds, it is not uncommon for the occasional seal or even a dolphin to be spotted in the bay. The beach is sheltered by a breakwater and is popular with families, who come here in summer to play in the sand and relax by the water. The Rhyl Flats wind farm can usually be seen out beyond the bay.
