Rhyl tourist guide
And so to one of the most famous Welsh twin resorts of all, Rhyl - birthplace and the growing up years of television's Carol Vorderman, comedian Lee Evans and perhaps slightly more sinister, Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain.
The visitor can enjoy walks along its traditional promenade, pop in to a café for afternoon tea, browse the souvenir shops, enjoy traditional fish and chips, enjoy more mainstream retail therapy in the town centre or just laze away the day followed by a romantic evening meal in one of the many restaurants of the world found throughout the town.
The area is famed for the six miles of safe, clean, golden sands that separate Rhyl from Prestatyn. The vital building of sandcastles can carry on unhindered, or maybe a traditional donkey ride may appeal, or even a quiet swim in the sea under the watchful eye of the lifeguard patrol. There's the Rhyl Promenade Land Train that travels from Rhyl Suncentre to the Ocean Beach Fun Fair, or perhaps a few hour's fishing off the coast might be the order of the day. There's also the Fun Maze, Sea-Life Centre, Rhyl's Children's Village and of course traditional candy floss to keep the younger family members amused.
It makes no difference what your taste in holiday entertainment is - Rhyl and Prestatyn will have it all - sailing, swimming, indoor bowls, cricket, Crown Green Bowls, sea fishing, lake fishing, windsurfing, squash, tennis and more besides.
And with Rhyl and Prestatyn summers being hotter, sunnier and drier than the UK average, what more could the visitor want?
