Rhosneigr is a well kept village which is popular with the watersport fraternity. It is particularly known as a premier wind surfing and kite surfing venue and has its own surf shop.
There are three beaches, each having pleasingly different qualities. Traeth Crigyll (aka: Town Beach), which sits adjacent to and just north of the village is the busiest; it is also where the windsurfers and sailors congregate.
Traeth Cymyran lies further to the north west – there is a mix of sand and shingle here, making it a great beach for a stroll. There is a strong tidal race at the Plas Cymyran end of the beach which can be dangerous.
South of Rhosneigr is Traeth Llydan (aka: Broad Beach) – this is (as the name suggests) a broad beach, sandy but with some good rock pools at both ends. It acts as an overspill from Traeth Crigyll on busy days but is well worth a visit in its own right. There are sand dunes at the top of the beach and in the evening it often attracts sea anglers. When the conditions are right it draws the surfers too.
There is not much shelter here, but a walk along the beach on a stormy day is sure to invigorate!
Rhosneigr is well supplied with facilities, including toilets, a cash point, shops, cafes and the aforementioned surf shop.
Dogs are allowed here.
Approach / parking:
There is a car park in Rhosneigr, but the parking spaces close to the beach tend to fill up quickly on weekend days.
