Your best bet is Colwyn Bay,its nearer to you and trailers can park right by the slip,launch anytime of tide just like New Brighton,straight concrete slip right onto the beach,jet skis have their own slip 100yards further down,little bloke will spring up from behind the cafe hut for a fee and a sight of your insurance,straights are only a 10 minute blast away,otherwise Beaumaris,take a right after the bridge,public slip is by the ice cream/fishing trips kiosk on the front,conway slip you usually have a strong tidal rush takes the boat off your trailer,plas coch caravan park got there own slip right on the straits,left at Menai bridge,mile and a bit,tidal tho,you thinking of breaking round the island record or something?
