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.
Rhosneigr is located on the West coast of Anglesey, between the Villages of Valley and Aberffraw. This beach is WORLD FAMOUS for its surf, and is visited by freestylers, surfers, kite-surfers and boarders from all over the world.
Launching from here is available at all states of tide, and offers access to the Western coastline of Anglesey, Holy Island and Caernarfon Bay. Noteable features to visit from here include South Stack, or you could just stay and play in the surf!
The slipway here (pic. 1) is of flat, concrete construction and leads to a sand surface. While being mostly firm, there can be areas of soft sand, so care must be taken when towing onto the beach with 2wd vehicles. The slipway is very short here, so this is essentially a beach launch location. Vehicles are not permitted on the beach (pic. 2) EXCEPT for the launching and recovery of craft.
Street parking is pretty impossible at the Beach Terrace slipway and very limited on the village streets, but there is limited seasonal vehicle/ trailer parking offered by Funsport/ Bucky’s Surf Shop, which we are most welcome to use. Just drop into the shop and ask when you arrive.
Alternatively (and preferably) please park & launch from the Beach Road access point.
