Rhos on Sea - "A village by the sea" - remaining unspoilt and still a relatively well kept secret!!
In a nutshell. - "Small is beautiful" in this charming seaside village located between big brothers Llandudno and Colwyn Bay.
If only all seaside towns could be like this – neat, pristine and peaceful. The long seafront walkway from Colwyn Bay takes in Rhos-on-Sea’s breakwater, where a little harbour has an atmosphere reminiscent of a West Wales coastal village.
As well as a Co-Operative and Spar food store open 7 days a week till late, Rhos also has:
* an excellent butchers selling locally produced meat as well as home made sausages
* an Organic/Health food shop
* a Delicatessen offering cheeses and locally produced bread and pies etc
* a Bakery selling fresh bread, pies and cream cakes
* a Friday Country market selling locally produced jams, chutneys ready prepared meals, cakes, biscuits etc
* a Green Grocer's with a large selection of locally produced fruit and vegetables and specialised food products
With many other interesting shops, pavement cafes, 2 pubs, several places to eat, the famous Harlequin Puppet Theatre and the historical St Trillo's Church, there's always something to do.
There are no less than 25 historic sites to discover on foot via the Rhos on Sea Heritage Trail. The sweeping promenade fringes a naturally sheltered bay that's perfect for pottering, paddling, kite flying and beach combing. Winter or summer it's a splendid walk (or jog!) and cycle path for people of all ages.
A delightful harbour created by the breakwater is home to many small boats with daily fishing trips during the season and excellent launch facilities for day visitors.
