Rhos on Sea is a 'village by the sea', remaining unspoilt and still a relatively well kept secret!!
In a nutshell - small is beautiful in this charming seaside town 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 and is home to many small boats.
There are daily fishing trips during the season, excellent launch facilities for day visitors, and a jetty just perfect for keeping the kids occupied for hours enjoying the traditional seaside pastime of 'crabbing'.
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.
It’s not just the traditional promenade and lungfuls of salty sea air that attract walkers. Start your exploration from the tiny, roughly vaulted St Trillo’s Chapel at Rhos Point. Standing on the site of an ancient healing well, it’s the smallest church in Britain, seating only six. St Trillo’s is one of 26 historic sites on the circular Rhos-on-Sea Heritage Trail, which also takes in the remains of Bryn Euryn, a 5th-century hillfort with airy views.There are no less than 26 historic sites to discover on foot via the Rhos on Sea Heritage Trail.
As well as a Co-Operative and Spar food store (both open 7 days a week till late and within an easy stroll from St David's House), 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 Traditional Greengrocers selling locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables
* a Friday Country market selling locally produced jams, chutneys ready prepared meals, cakes, biscuits etc as well as a selection of home made gifts and garden plants
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.
