Porth Eirias on Colwyn Bay travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Harbours in Wales and England >  Porth Eirias
Porth Eirias is a waterfront development on the promenade in Colwyn Bay, North Wales. Originally designed as part of the Colwyn Bay flood prevention scheme, Porth Eirias is to be a hub, or watersports hotspot, in the Bay of Colwyn.

The Rhos Harbour end of the Bay of Colwyn has traditionally been the centre for watersports including fishing trips and mooring of pleasure boats, while the Eirias slipway has been used more or less exclusively by the Jet Ski community.

With the arrival of the Porth Eirias Watersports Centre this is set to change and sailing boats and sea kayaks will be encouraged at the new centre. No doubt the ever growing numbers of SUP's, stand up paddlers (on surfboards) will also be encouraged and the new centre will also house changing rooms, an educational centre, cafe and bistro.
The new watersports centre has, however, caused some controversy around the Bay of Colwyn. The council is proposing to demolish the Rhos Point complex and redevelop the site without the popular fishing tackle / boat trips / kayak hire and souvenir shops that occupy the building at present, and moving the watersports centre to Porth Eirias.

A petition has been drawn up to protest at the proposals and the Conwy County officials are holding an open shop in Rhos on Sea on Wednesday 14th March 2012 to explain the new plans.

Personally I believe the Bay of Colwyn is big enough for two watersports centres and indeed rather than them being in competition with one another I say they would complement each other.
