View more Launch sites in Anglesey

Before launching your craft it is vitally important for your own personal safety and the safety of others that you take the time to read carefully the Rules & Regulations as set out by Gwynedd Council. Please adhere to these rules and regulations at all time.

Rhoscolyn is located at the Southern end of Holy Island, a few miles from Trearddur Bay. It is a glorious open, flat sandy beach (pic. 2), ideal for ALL the family.

Launching from here offers the Western coastline of Anglesey, access to Caernarfon Bay and the rugged coastline of Holy Island. Noteable features to explore here include  North & South Stack, the big cave in-between them & The Inland Sea at Four Mile Bridge.

There is no slipway here but the access to the sand, although strewn with pebbles & boulders (pic. 1), would be easy for 4 wheel Drive vehicles, and ok with 2wd driven with care. Once past the rubble, the beach is flat and has a firm sand surface (can be a little soft right near the waterline). Launching here is possible at all states of tide.

Parking is provided at the each access point (pic. 3) and there is a seasonal toilet block, This carpark now operates a pay & display machine system
