Beaches in Rhyl

Rhyl West

Situated in the west end of Rhyl from the Harbour to The Village, this is where the town's harbour is located.

We discourage swimming near the harbour as vessels navigate in and out of it, and the River Clwyd has fast flowing currents that can lead to people getting into difficulty or being swept out to sea.

The beach here is ideal for a day out making sand castles, paddling and catching some rays, but don't forget the sun cream!

Dogs are restricted in this area from May to September.

Rhyl Central

Opposite the top of the High Street, is our busiest beach where we encourage bathing. During the season our lifeguards will keep an eye on you to ensure your safety in and out of the water, so that you have an enjoyable visit.

Don't forget that the tides go in and out!

Rhyl Central is now host to our beach sport activities. This includes Beach Volleyball and Beach Football free of charge whilst the lifeguards are on duty.

Don't get caught out on a sandbank when there is an incoming tide by checking the tide times. Dogs are restricted in this area from May to September.

Rhyl central is one an area where our lifeguards are stationed during the season.

Splash Point

Splash Point is our dog friendly beach, and it's where dogs can stretch their legs at any time.

Access onto the beach here is at certain points as the sea walls are quite high between the beach and the promenade.

If you're taking your dog onto the beach at Old Golf Road, head east (towards Prestatyn) and you've got a few miles of beach where you can go unrestricted.
