    Prestatyn Warnings and Dangers

    The 'danger area' of Prestatyn is a 200-meter radius of the town's railway station. Late at night it is a hang-out for the town's youths, and people have been attacked and badly injured at the railway station. It is not well-lit or manned at night, and can be quite an intimidating place to disembark.

  • Rip-off Harun's.

    Prestatyn Restaurants

    I know another tip has praised Harun's already. The food is alright but the portion size is unfair. My friend and I ordered exactly the same kebab and paid the same price, but they gave him twice what I had! If they know you you get preferential treatment, but this is unfair to other paying customers. I have not been back there since.
