Point of Ayr
 

Directions: From Ffynnongroyw continue north on the A548 until a roundabout is reached. Turn right towards Talacre. At the end of the road is a car park on the right or continue on to the sands where you can also park, although it may be muddy in winter. The Point of Ayr RSPB reserve and hide are to the right and Talacre marsh and Point of Ayr Lighthouse to the left.The shore by the lighthouse is a good beach backed by sand dunes. This is a good spot for sea-watching, continue walking to get to Gronant.

 

Those wanting to visit the hide overlooking Talacre fields (Warren Farm) where there can be large numbers of waders present at high tide can get the keys at any time from the visitor centre at BHPBilliton during office hours and at the BHPBilliton  security office all other times. The hide is on Station Road (on the way to the Point of Ayr) just next to the railway bridge.
The nearest railway stations are at Flint and Prestatyn with a bus service between.
