Joined to Rhyl by endless rows of modern bungalows is its sister resort of Prestatyn; not nearly as gaudy and much more suited, perhaps, to retirees or those seeking a quieter environment to enjoy the sea breezes. Children are well catered to here; there is safe sea bathing on its long, wide beaches and at Central Beach, the Royal Lido offers shelter (and indoor swimming) on rainy, cold days. There are more activities at Ffrith Beach. Bryntirion has a fine tennis club, in beautiful surroundings.

Pony racing (Totting) was popular here for many years following World War ll, but has since moved to Abergele, a few miles north of Rhyl.

Next Stop: Abergele
