Talacre dog-friendly beach, Wales


This is the beach that was used in the filming of the 2011 Dulux advert (the one with the dog running past the lighthouse).


Cafes and a chip shop, amusements, public toilets, "coin-in-slot" children's rides, ice cream. Toilets are just before the beach, parking is free and there is on-beach parking as well as a regular car park.

Not far from other North Wales seaside towns. SatNav/GPS users head for Talacre, Holywell, Clwyd CH8 or co-ordinates 53.353246, -3.316610 will take you right to the beach.


Nice big North Wales beach with off lead dog walking and nearby cafes and a chip shop. Sand dunes are off limits due to wildlife but a good area of beach is fully dog friendly all year round. Apparently there are some dog free areas which are signed, but we didn't come across any.

Sand dunes now have purpose path through to keep people off the dunes themselves. Easy access for wheel chair users also on this path.

Plenty of DogPoo bins so please use them as this area is used for the holiday park too.

Out of season it is a great place to go but during summer I would refrain from weekend use as there are a lot of kids around.
