About Rhyl Harbour

Rhyl Harbour is located on the spectacular North Wales Coast and has undergone a dramatic refurbishment which has hugely improved the facilities on offer. The original timber yard which was used by sailing ships up until the Second World War, has been redeveloped and now offers storage for over 150 boats.

A new 65 metre launching slipway, pontoons and quay walls have also been installed as part of the redevelopment. The harbour now offers a range of fore and aft moorings and pontoon berths. Access from the slipway is available 2.5 hours either side of high water.

Our team work 7 days a week all year round. Operating hours are 8am - 8pm from May to September (tide permitting) and 9am - 5pm during the winter months.

Pont Y Ddraig at night

The spectacular Pont y Ddraig Pedestrian / Cycle Bridge is well worth a view. Opened in October 2013, the bridge closes the gap on National Cycle Network Route 5, which runs along the North Wales coast line. This route provides traffic free access to the 'Wales Coastal Path' as well as to the new Harbour facilities. The bridge opens to allow vessels in and out of the harbour, and is operated from the harbour office within the quayside building.

Just over the road from the Harbour is Marine Lake, the only salt water lake in North Wales. Twelve hectares and relatively sheltered, Marine Lake is perfect for sailing dinghies or kayakers. For those who don’t like to get wet, have a walk round the Lake taking in our new Environmental Trail, spot some of the wildlife, have a go crabbing or take a ride on the Miniature Railway, the oldest in the UK and operated by Rhyl Steam Preservation Trust.
