Cycling is one of the best ways of getting to see all of Denbighshire’s superb beaches and wonderful attractions, whilst also staying healthy and helping the environment.

The National Cycle Network along the North Wales Coast (National Route 5) links Gronant, Prestatyn, Rhyl, Kinmel Bay and Abergele and is almost completely traffic-free. Running from Barkby Beach with its views of the North Hoyle Wind farm, the route continues on the promenade to Rhyl with its many attractions. The newly opened ‘Pont Y Ddraig’ harbour bridge links the cycle route and Wales Coast Path from the Promenade across the river towards Conwy. It is well worth taking a few minutes to stop at the harbour and admire the new bridge in all its glory, especially during the evening when it is lit up and reflects on the water.

Cycling is an ideal way of getting about Prestatyn and seeing the countryside. There are two cycle routes starting in Prestatyn taking in the picturesque Dyserth Waterfall which has a pub, a café and toilets for visitors, Barkby Beach and Frith Beach – they both commence from the Prestatyn – Dyserth Way, a shared use traffic free railway path that runs to the village of Dyserth with its famous waterfall. This 3 mile route has many aspects of interest including geology, archaeology and a variety of wildlife habitats. If you have come without a bike, don’t worry – there is a cycle hire shop on the High Street, Prestatyn.
