Prestatyn Central Beach

Prestatyn is a coastal resort in North Wales with three beaches that join up to form a five mile stretch of sand, interspersed with rock groynes. Central Beach is wide and north-facing, popular with sailors and windsurfers, and backed by a wide promenade much-used by cyclists.

Plenty of facilities including a leisure centre and amusement arcades. The North Wales Cycle Trail and Offa’s Dyke Path both converge on the seafront.
