Activities

Walking

One of the most impressive but relatively easy walks in the area is to take in part of the Wales Coast Path. A 5.5 mile stretch of the path leads from Colwyn Bay to Llandudno. It’s a great seafront walk with plenty of superb wildlife spotting opportunities. You can wander inland too, and behind the town lies Pwllycrochan Woods, a delightful belt of deciduous woodland latticed with footpaths and guided nature trails. Other popular local trails include the Fairy Glen at Old Colwyn and Bryn Euryn above Rhos-on-Sea. Leaflets are available to pick up at various local outlets or you can see the countryside pages of Conwy Council’s website for more information and ideas for walks. 

Cycling

The National Cycle Route 5 runs along the North Wales coast through Colwyn Bay, linking it to Rhyl in the north and Bangor to the south. The majority of the route is traffic-free and there are plenty of refreshment stops along the way, as the route passes through many towns and villages. Bike hire from family cycles through to road racers or mountain bikes is available locally from West End Cycles and, operating from Easter to October, also from GogCogs cycle hire company based on the beachfront at Porth Eirias. 

Fishing

There’s a host of boats in Colwyn Bay that can take you out sea angling. Depending on the season you can fish inshore for whiting, codling, bass and mackerel, or venture further out for pollock, cod, conger and coalfish. Sea Angling Trips set off from Rhos-on-Sea, and further information is available from the Harbour Office on 01492 596253.

You can also launch your own craft from several locations along the coast including Porth Eirias Slipway, Colwyn Bay (powered craft only including PWC) and Aberhod Slipway, Rhos-on-Sea (non powered craft only). Fees are payable and you will need appropriate insurance.
