Rhyl Marine Lake, joined to the sea by a single sluice gate, is so big it has its own island in the middle. So it’s perfect for watersports. There are taster sessions throughout August in everything from sailing and canoeing to kneeboarding, waterskiing and wakeboarding. Call the TIC for further details.
And while you’re trying to avoid a wipe-out, your kids can follow the environmental trail around the lake – and hear the interactive notice boards making wildlife noises. Or they could just explore the new improved play area. Give them a wave if you can stay upright for long enough.
Rhyl Miniature Railway, the oldest mini steam link in Britain, has been taking families on trips around the Marine Lake since 1911. It celebrated its 100th birthday by building a splendid new Central Station with its own museum – where you can sit in the driver’s seat of Billy the engine, pull signal levers and ring bells. For big kids of all ages.
