Rhoscolyn Life is a destination page bringing you an insiders guide to Rhoscolyn. From local history, to popular events and great places to stay. Rhoscolyn Life has all the info you need!

Set in a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, Rhoscolyn is renowned for it’s rugged cliffs, award-winning beaches and sublime coastal scenery.

Visitors are drawn, not only for its obvious loveliness, but also because of its character, charm – and a magical ‘pull’ that’s hard to define!

There are two road bridges from Anglesey onto Holy Island, yet it retains that special ‘small island’ atmosphere and ambience. The refurbished White Eagle pub has certainly helped make Rhoscolyn a ‘destination’ not to be missed – however, it has long been known for it’s beauty and wonderful walking opportunities.

With vistas that stretch across Anglesey, Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula, Rhoscolyn is the perfect place to begin your ‘Coastal Path’ wonderings. You’ll experience landscapes that include: beach, farmland, coastal heath, dunes, salt marsh, cliffs, and pockets of woodland. Bird-watchers won’t be disappointed either, with a myriad of feathered inhabitants to observe throughout the year – along with other coastal and country wildlife.

A fabulous place for water-sports enthusiasts too, with opportunities for swimming, surfing, body-boarding, and kayaking – to name but a few of the activities on offer. Other popular pastimes include fishing, seal-watching, building sandcastles, sunbathing… and relaxing! You might even catch a glimpse of the local lobster fishermen if you’re up early enough. Sample fresh seafood at the pub, or from a local business on the lane down to the main bay. The Bodior Farm Shop will provide you with other lovely local produce.

For that romantic ‘getting away from it all’ weekend, or a sandy-footed family adventure, Rhoscolyn has it all. Truly, once experienced, never forgotten!
