Rhosneigr (Traeth Llydan) Spot Guide

About Rhosneigr (Traeth Llydan)

Not exactly renowned for the quality of its surf, this long stretch of sandy beach is more popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers, but on those super rare days when a SW swell threads the needle between Ireland and the Llyn Peninsula there can be fun waves here. It mostly gets onshore windswell through. Better banks form by the stream.
