Sightseeing Around Prestatyn

The North Wales town of Prestatyn is surrounded by outstanding scenery nestled between the Irish Sea and the northern end of the Clwydian Hills.

To the west, the Snowdonia mountain range can be seen towering over the local hills. To the east, is the mouth of the Dee estuary and the Wirral headland. To the south, the hills of the Clwydian Range down towards Llangollen and the start (or the end) of the Offa's Dyke Path that leads down the length of Wales to Chepstow.

Prestatyn has some of the best sandy and family friendly beaches North Wales has to offer, extending for miles towards Rhyl in the west and Point-of-Ayr in the east. Prestatyn became a popular seaside resort when the railway came to the town in the 1840s, and to this day it is enjoyed by thousands of holiday-makers and day-trippers alike.

The North Wales coast also boasts a rare collection of castles, mostly built by the English King Edward I in the 13th century. Rhuddlan and Flint Castles are the nearest to Prestatyn, although the town did have a castle as well - a much older motte and bailey style thought to be built around A.D. 1157.
