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.
