Lido Beach Holiday Park is very near to the centre of Prestatyn and all that it has to offer the holidaymaker, of whatever age. Its great benefits are that guests who arrive by train have only a five minute walk to Lido Beach; this applies to those arriving by coach too. Within walking distance of the park we have mini-golf, amusement arcades, and of course long sandy beaches.
Lido Beach is a family park and is appreciated by the many guests who return year after year because of its position alongside the beach and the fact that there are no rowdy venues on the park itself. However, as it is part of a group of holiday parks guests can use the shuttle bus provided to take them to the sister park of Robin Hood, just five minutes away, where they can take advantage of the large entertainment centre that houses swimming pools, clubhouse, playgrounds, arcades etc. The fee for a family pass for up to eight guests is obtainable from reception.
If you enjoy visiting local markets, you are in for a real treat here in Prestatyn for the market ground comes to life on Tuesdays and Fridays. There is now a large car boot sale on Thursdays which is becoming more and more popular. Travel a little further down the coast to the Sunday market at the Blue Ship and visit Abakhan, a fantastic outlet for knitting yarns and accessories, all sorts of materials and household fabrics, crafts items. They have an extremely inviting restaurant, which provides not only home cooked meals, but also offers free wifi.
155 Lido Beach is a newly acquired two bedroom, beautifully furnished caravan.
The double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and there is the benefit of a travel cot in the caravan.
Bed linen is not offered in 155. The caravan has a television, DVD player, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, microwave and Brevel maker. For those travelling by public transport with a younger child there is a push chair.
There is a large outside space with outdoor furniture, including an integral picnic table and bench. In the garden box there is a small tricycle and buckets and spades.
The caravan is non-smoking; pets are accepted.
Prestatyn is blessed with a good transport system; the modern railway station is less than five minutes from Lido Beach. Trains from here go south to Chester for a day's shopping or a visit to the famous zoo, or north through the towns of Rhyl, Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Conwy, on to the beautiful island of Anglesey.
There is a bus station in the town and buses go to all points north, south, east and west. In the summer months the open top bus from Talacre calls alongside Lido Beach.
For those who are less able to use public transport the taxi rank is just below the station.
Rhyl has been a favourite town to visit for Midlanders and Northerners alike. It has been through several modernisations and has plenty to offer to both adults and children.
The pedestrianised shopping centre has many of the bigger stores and just over the bridge is a huge Morrisons. Sainsbury's and Asda are a short drive from the centre.
Of course, the long sandy beach is ideal for the children and is full of cafes, ice cream sellers etc, and at Marine Lake is the well loved Miniature Railway (now the oldest in Britain, which was first opened on 1st May 1911. It is now the oldest miniature line in the UK. Many of today's passengers rode on it as children, and are now bringing the next generation to share in the experience. It travels around Marine Lake and prices are very reasonable. A new nature and heritage trail has been opened and you can follow the Rubbings Trail which has interactive features and sculptures at the Learning Stations around the lake. Ask for a leaflet at the station.
Opposite the shopping centre, alongside the beach, we have the summer fairground rides, the Children's Village and the multi-plex cinema - something for everyone.
Rhyl's Pavilion Theatre is extremely popular and hosts a variety of shows throughout the year - click here to check the shows during your stay.
The island of Anglesey is also one of our favourite places to visit: Beaumaris Castle, Foel Farm Park, Butterfly Palace, The Museum of Childhood Memories, Anglesey Sea Zoo are just some tourist attractions on the island. It's an enjoyable journey from Prestatyn to Anglesey, crossing the Menai Bridge onto the island, by road or train, and makes a good day out.
