RHOSNEIGR VILLAGE BEACH
Rhosneigr Village Beach
Please, please, please - can anything be done about the increasing amount of deritus - in the form of 4x4s, jet skis, boats, and their associated paraphernalia such as tractors and towing equipement, etc - parked on town beach, Rhosneigr.
Only a matter of five or six years ago the beach was practically deserted, even in the height of summer except for jolly family groups.
Where are the old bucket and spade brigade? We welcomed and still welcome surfers - but cannot support the ghastly noise and stink of deisel fumes now permeating the peace of this little piece of heaven and squeezing us out.
Last year we even had to suffer for the whole afternoon the noise of 'music' relayed by loud speakers - the wires trailing from the surf shop across the beach down to the rocks - for the 'entertainment' of a group of surfers.
In fact, the whole group were down on the shore line way beyond hearing - the only people listening were the three guys who were operating the system! We were told when we asked for the 'music' to be turned down that they were bringing tourism to Rhosneigr. It turned out that the group had been refused accomodation in the area and had had to camp some other place further on north!
As to the welcome now extended to families - I see that the 'beach' has been recently 'refurbished' and extended up to and beyond Sausage Castle. But why should families be required to treck right up there - only to find less-than-suitable conditions for paddling and swimming (the Crygyll is VERY DEEP) - when the wine and wet suit brigade encroaches further and further into what was so pleasant a spot for us in the so
very recent past.
Further, whilst on the subject of families and children - when are we likely to see a ban on dogs (and, much more importantly, associated dog deritus) on Rhosneigr beaches?
And, please, would the person who allows his lovely black dog to roam the beach all day every day have some consideration? Last year we had a terrible incident of a little dog running off a lead biting a child to the distress of both families - the owner of the child as well as the owner(s) of the dog.
Despite the above - we will, as we have done for the past 30 plus years - see you all again this Summer!!!!
Your concerns are legitimate. Rhosneigr has been developing nicely over the past decade, from a dead-on-its-feet little forgotten seaside town.
However, and it's your However
, progress reaches a point where one has to reflect on what it intends to become.
There is a project being considered by the Rhosneigr Village Company to concrete the rocks to the south and create a boat pool.
As you can imagine there's fair bit of local and visitor opposition to this. Once you fiddle with the character any item, then you lose a small but essential component that makes up the beauty of the whole.
I love Rhosneigr and the walk from Cable Bay along the beach to the village and back is one of the most pleasant walks on Anglesey. During the evenings everybody gives you a wave or a 'hello'.
Anglesey draws visitors because it is essentially untampered with. It's what welcome visitors love.
