The two sandy bays (divided by rocks) of Rhosneigr form the windsurfing capital of N. Wales. Although feeling fairly enclosed they actually pick up quite a bit of swell and can produce perfect cross-shore wave riding and jumping conditions. S-SW winds are best.

Parking is available near to the beach, but Rhosneigr is a very popular windsurfing location and the car parking can be problematic on busy days. In lighter winds Rhosneigr is suitable for early intermediates or even beginners. There is also a nearby lake that is often used by compete beginners to take their first steps into the world of windsurfing.

Kite-surfing is also very popular at Rhosneigr with S-SW winds again being ideal.

There can be a fairly strong rip at the southern end of the beach and there are also submerged rocks here, so its best to stay away from this end of the beach unless you feel like destroying your kit. The surfing at Rhosneigr can also be pretty good on big swells and the waves are best on the push of the tide. Shops, pubs and other amenities are all available near the beach.
