RAF Station Prestatyn was an RAF radar post situated near Prestatyn, in Denbighshire, north-east Wales. The remains of some of the buildings are current. The rotor station is visible as a square building from most of Prestatyn, as it is situated on Gwaenysgor hill. The area around the post is fenced off as a TV satellite is alongside the buildings.

The radar site was last used in the late 1960s and the area has remained unchanged since it was abandoned.

There was once a gun turret mounted out to sea that could shoot up to 5 km.[1]
