Things to do in Prestatyn
No trip to Prestatyn is complete without taking advantage of the very reason it’s a holiday resort – the long, clean, sandy stretches of Ffrith Beach. When the sun is shining it’s a beautiful place, full of the sights and sounds of a traditional seaside resort from ice creams to cream teas. Get a fishing net and bucket and take your kids into the sea to see if they can catch some little creatures, then relax under the sun and let the hours lap by while they build sandcastles.
The trip to Pontin’s Prestatyn Sands is now a 50-year-old tradition, taken by fun-lovers of all ages from throughout the nation. It’s a 15-minute walk from the station, but you’ll always be able to pick up a taxi. Once you’re there, expect to be fed, watered and entertained to your heart’s content. Kids will love it. It’s right on the seafront and a short stroll to the town centre, so even if you just use it as a base camp, it’s a great place to stay.
Golf lovers come from far and wide to experience a round at Prestatyn Golf Club, which is more than 100 years old. It’s an open course that runs right along the coast, which makes for some unique challenges when it comes to dealing with the sea breeze. When you’re finished, it’s off to the clubhouse for a warm chat and a bite to eat.
