Ffrith beach (Prestatyn )

Prestatyn is a holiday resort in North Wales, between the River dee Estuary and Rhyl.  It has three sandy beaches, joined by a 4-mile long promenade.  The promenade is popular with cyclists and dog walkers.

In its heyday the area behind Ffrith Beach has a boating lake and a lively fun fair.  Today there is a bowling alley with a number of other amenities, but the area is much quieter than it once was. 
There are sea defences along this stretch of the coastline, including a number of groynes. 

Dog restrictions apply to the eastern end of the beach from the start of May until the end of September.

The nearest car park to Ffrith Beach is accessed from Victoria Road.
