Talacre Beach

Talacre Beach

Talacre Beach (pronounced 'Ta-la-cree') is wide, sandy, windswept and provides a welcome relief from the more commercialised resorts of the North Wales Coast. It is backed by the SSSI of Gronant dunes and Talacre Warren, which is home to the rare sand lizard and the natterjack toad. The disused Point of Ayr lighthouse stands in the middle of the beach and is supposedly haunted by the ghost of a former keeper. Strong currents make the beach unsuitable for swimming or other watersports. Dogs are allowed at all times. Facilities include toilets, a cafe, a pub, shops and a post office.

Free car parking (on rough sandy ground) is available just behind the dunes at the very end of the road.
