    Talacre's most famous sight is the Lighthouse located on the beach, as it is the location of numerous ghostly sightings. Some people claiming to have seen a figure wearing old fashioned lighthouse keeper clothes and standing in front of the glass dome of the currently abandoned lighthouse.

    The beach and dunes are a great place for a walk when the tide is out. So many people just enjoying the fresh air here, lovely to see families out together. There is a cararan park just down the road so this is an ideal spot for them to enjoy the outdoors. Good spot for bird watching too - a bird hide is availble a short walk away.

    Well this is the view of the Dee Estuary here. We had seen the Dee from the opposite side from our home town and is was so strange looking back across to our home - can't think why we had not visited here before in the 15 years we have lived over there.

    Talacre Beach was used extensively during WWII by RAF Fighter Command. Every day fighters would fly over the remote welsh village, shooting at wooden targets in the Sand Dunes and at Drogues towed by other aircraft, and as such the Dunes are a popular site for metal detectors.

    The village was also used for the testing of new devices, such as 'window', the anti-radar foil which, on occasion, covered the whole village in silver.

    Favorite thing: The long stretch of beach following the estuary means its great conditions for kite flying and microlite fliers. Guess the view must be amazing from that height - not sure I'd be brave enough to try it myself though, looks a bit neve-racking being suspended like that!
