Mini guide to Prestatyn
Prestatyn is located on the north Welsh coast near the seaside towns of Rhyl and
Colwyn Bay and is the oldest resort on this coast. Award winning beaches, wonderful
countryside and a town loaded with attractions and activities makes Prestatyn
a popular summer resort for the whole family.
The focus of Prestatyn is the beaches and Ffrith Beach, Central Beach (the
most beautiful) and Barkby Beach are linked by a promenade which forms part
of the National Cycle Route. The Offa's Dyke walk begins at Central Beach at
the Offa's Dyke Interpretive Centre and meanders its way down to Chepstow.
Sandwiched between sparkling seas and lush hills, Prestatyn town centre is
centred on the High street, which is loaded with shops, restaurants and pubs.
Historical delights in the town include the Roman bathhouse on Melyd avenue
and the nearby Prestatyn Church.
Prestatyn also boasts two superb golf courses: Prestatyn Championship Golf
Course and St Melyd Golf Course, and there is a family entertainment centre
near the beach. You will find many specialist shops along with larger stores
on the High street and there are dozens of cafés, quality restaurants
and bars in this area.
As the starting point of Offa's Dyke footpath, Prestatyn is the perfect base
for walkers and the outstanding Snowdonia National Park is just to the west.
Ryhl and Colwyn Bay are alternative seaside resorts to Prestatyn, while Chester
is within an hour's drive.
