There are several aspects to Rhos-on-Sea beach, in Conwy County, North Wales. The stretch of beach that sits between the village shops and the harbour is probably the most popular section in the summer months. Access to the sand and shingle beach is via steps from the promenade or a ramp at the Rhos Point end of the beach. The stone breakwater that forms the harbour wall creates a pleasant sheltered area popular for bathing and paddling. But if lazing on the beach is not your thing then head a few hundred yards to the west around Rhos Point to the mussel beds for a wide variety of seabirds including oyster-catchers, dunlins, cormorants and many more. Walk a few hundred yards in the other direction towards Colwyn Bay and there are wide expanses of sand and plenty to explore as the tide recedes. Check out the ancient fishing weir close to the Aberhod Restaurant, its been there for several hundred years ....the monks of Rhos Fynach can teach us a thing or two about utilising the power of the tides. Take a tea or coffee al-fresco at the Cayley Kiosk and if you are fortunate you may be rewarded by seeing the displays of gannets diving into the waters of the Bay that occur at various times throughout the year. The harbour area is ever popular with sea anglers for fishing trips and private pleasure boats that sail into the Irish Sea. In recent years sea kayaks have grown in popularity and may often be seen venturing into the waters of the Bay of Colwyn. The promenade at Rhos-on-Sea has a great selection of cafes, coffee bars, seaside kiosks, and quality restaurants. Bird watchers will appreciate the Rhos Harbour Bistro that offers a unique opportunity to enjoy good food and drink while watching the seabirds that are to be found at Rhos Point and Rhos Harbour rocks. (Tip. Best time for bird-watching in the Bistro are 1 hour before and 1 hour after high tide).
