Details

The Point of Ayr is a sand-dune point overlooking a large expanse of sand at the mouth of the Dee Estuary. The sand dunes are an Area of Special Scientific Interest being a successful breeding ground for the rare natterjack toads. To the east of Talacre village lies the Dee Estuary - Point of Ayr RSPB nature reserve. Bird watchers will appreciate visiting the reserve during the winter months, when, at high tide, the thousands of feeding birds are forced by the rising waters onto the salt marshes close to the shore. The Talacre dunes nearby are also popular with bird watchers. Close by stands the now redundant Point of Ayr lighthouse.

Facilities nearby in the village of Talacre include a number of seaside amusements, cafes, pubs and toilets. Parking is a short walk from the beach.
