About

Rhos-on-Sea/Colwyn Bay 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.

Another attraction is Rhos Fynach Crazy 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.

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

There is no lifeguard on the beach.

And remember, please don’t feed the seagulls!

Dogs on the beach

Bringing your dog to the beach can be a massive highlight for you and your pets. We encourage you to ensure your dog is under control at all times both on and off the lead, and to be aware of the restrictions in place at some of our beaches.

In general dogs are not allowed on the beaches (except for registered guide dogs and trained assistance dogs) between 1st May and 30th September, but some may prohibit dogs all year round while others have no restrictions at all to enjoying a seaside stroll with your pets.

We always ask that you pick up after your dog as it is an offence not to clean up immediately.

For more information about facilities available at each of our beaches see Conwy County Borough Council's website.
