Barkby beach - Clwyd

Located just to the east of Prestatyn's main strip and across the road from the Pontins resort Barkby is a long sandy beach. Divided up by a series of rocky breakwaters the beach is backed by a wide promenade.

Much of the beach is backed by sand dunes and grassy areas, some of which are set up as picnic areas.

The north-westerly aspect of the beach makes it ideal for windsurfing but can leave it a little exposed when there is a breeze.
