Prestatyn is a town in Denbighshire, on the north coast of Wales. It is the most easterly of the holiday resorts on the north Wales coast, and so is convenient for day trips from the cities of Liverpool and Manchester in north-west England.

Get in

By train

Prestatyn is on the Chester to Holyhead line, operated by Arriva Trains Wales.

Prestatyn is on the A548 Chester to Llanrwst road. It is also just 10 minutes' drive from the A55 Expressway which runs the length of the North Wales coastline.



Long-Distance Walking

Prestatyn is at the northern end of the 177 mile Offa's Dyke Path national trail, which runs the length of the Wales/England border to Chepstow, following an 8th-century defensive earthwork. Other trails starting and/or finishing in the town are the North Wales Path, Clwydian Way and Dee Way.


Prestatyn's most famous tourist attraction is its beach. The town's central beach has been awarded the Blue Flag, the only Denbighshire beach with the accolade.
