\\\ Dog Walks
Featuring dog walking around the UK.
Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches.
Rhos-On-Sea is a North Welsh town sited between Llandudno towards the west and Colwyn Bay and Old Colwyn towards the east on the norther coastline. All four locations have sandy beaches suitable for dog walking, but it’s the three-mile stretch between Rhos-On-Sea and Colwyn Bay that is outstanding due to it’s famed, wide promenade walk making it ideal as a dog walking venue, possible all year round.
Rhos-On-Sea, Colwyn Bay and Llandudno West Shore are all towns proud of their blue flag beach status, for cleaner bathing water, whilst Colwyn Bay and Llandudno are the busy visitor town destinations, since late Victorian times, situated on the North Welsh coast, Rhos-On-Sea is much smaller with a long history of a charming traditional fishing village looking out to the Irish Sea.
There are dog restrictions on all four town beaches in place, May 1st – 30th September due to the high number of visitors. These restrictions are for the popular and immediate town areas of the beach only and dog-walkers are welcome to use other parts of the beaches with the local council particularly noting that the Small Sandy Beach at Rhos Point, Rhos-On-Sea is dog-friendly all year.

Beaches tend to be flat, with a little shingle in some areas on the backshore, but mostly sandy. There are organised sloped ways for ease of access in the popular towns of Colwyn Bay and Llandudno.
Rhos-On-Sea has a smaller, slightly muddy beach where the tide comes into meeting the promenade walks so is unsuitable at high tide to beach visit, however, it has cafes and lots of car parking facilities to enjoy.
The North Welsh coast is extremely well served with lifeboat stations, at Llandudno, Colwyn Bay and a little further to the east, Rhyl station. You can feel safe by the water that there are excellent emergency services available. The RNLI have a website with helpful advice to remind yourself about sea safety.
The area has various veterinary practices to choose from in case of pet emergencies in Llandudno and Colwyn serving domestic pets.
Take a look at the opportunity for a staycation with your pets at lovely Rural Retreats hand-picked cottages at Colwyn Bay. Below features one of the pet-friendly cottages sea views providing a taster of luxury retreats available.
Biggest doggie tips are to remember to take lots of fresh water and collapsible bowl for your thirsty dog and old towels to dry your dog if they’ve been swimming and to help clean off the sand before going home!
