Flintshire has spectacular coast and fabulous hills, a Wales in miniature. The Dee estuary is of international importance where migrating birds over-winter on a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The River Dee meets the Irish Sea at Talacre, creating unspoilt beaches and sand dunes which have won yellow flag awards, perfect for family holidays.
Away from the coast, the Clwydian Range
is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Ancient hill forts dominate the skyline, including the mounded fort of Moel Arthur, one of the many places in Western Britain where King Arthur is reputed to be buried!
