Things to do
Beaches: Whilst Anglesey itself has numerous beaches, Rhosneigr is home to three, Traeth Cymyran (Town Beach), Pwll Cwch and Traeth Llydan (Broad Beach). All of these are sand beaches which have received the highest honours in the Green Coast Awards. Whilst Town Beach is extremely popular with windsurfers, and there are a number of coaches, tutors and hire shops in the area to facilitate this popularity, Broad Beach is used for canoeing, sailing and walking. Broad Beach also has a number of rock pools which are extremely popular with children and grown-ups alike.
Fishing: Sea and lake fishing are both popular pursuits in Rhosneigr, and it’s not difficult to see why. For those hankering for the open ocean, there are a variety of boats available, both for private charter and for daily tours where a guide will provide insider knowledge on the best spots to catch a bite. Alternatively, for those anglers wishing to keep their feet on dry land, Lake Maelog is well stocked with Carp, Roach and Rudd. In addition, there are numerous tackle and bait shops within the town.
Nature: The afore mentioned Lake Maelog is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and has been so since 2011. This is due, in part to the large amount of flora, fauna and animal species which are naturally drawn to the lake. In addition to the scientific interest, the lake and surrounding areas are a favourite with visitors. The main path around the lake provides a flat surface for a leisurely walk, whilst the lake itself is home to numerous bird species, including swans and wildfowl.
History: Staying in a holiday apartment in Rhosneigr gives access to some fascinating pieces of local history. The wreck of the Norman Court Tea Clipper which ran to ground in 1872 is a famed diving point and some parts of the wreckage can still be seen on particularly clear days. Meanwhile, the local Crigyll Rocks were used by pirates to lure unsuspecting passing boats. In addition, St Maelog’s Church and the caves of Barclodiad y Gawres both offer interesting stop off points.
On average, Rhosneigr enjoys a pleasant climate. July tends to be the hotter of the summer months, with the average temperature reaching 15°C whilst January is the coldest month with an average low of 5°C. Visitors can typically expect June to have the most hours of sunshine, averaging around 6 hours a day, whilst November is the wettest month with an average of 161mm of rain during the month. With watersports and activities being a favoured pastime around the town, visitors may also like to know that the best month to swim in the ocean is August when sea temperatures rise to 16°C.
Being on a small island apart from the mainland, a visitor might expect that Anglesey is a difficult destination. However, with car, rail, boat and air travel all catered for, it could potentially be easier to reach Rhosneigr holiday apartments than some other Welsh destinations. The Menai Suspension Bridge is the most common way of arriving whilst there are direct trains from London on a regular basis. In addition, Anglesey Airport (HLY) welcomes flights on a daily basis.
