Talacre Beach is traditionally a low tide venue as its a long and shallow. It tends to hit the forums and report pages on social media during the summer months, when people target the smoothhounds in the area.

It fishes ok at low for other species such as flatties and can throw up bass too. Whiting and Cod are available in winter, when entering the beach area head to the right until just after the green bouy. It is a bit of a walk, watch out for the soft almost muddy sinking sand in a few areas. It has quite a tidal pull at times being at the end of the river Dee.

Talacre is a haven for holiday makers in summer but there is usually enough free parking. There are a couple of paid parking areas behind the pub on the way in. Just be mindful the free car park closes / gets locked in the evening and it is liable to flooding a high tides, 40 are were written off not long ago! The free car park itself is full of large pot holes but navigated slowly and carefully it’s fine.
