Ainsdale Beach is one of the most popular on the coast and has been awarded a Quality Coast Award by Keep Britain Tidy.
It is the only beach in the North West to have ever been awarded the international Blue Flag (in 2004 and 2006).
The QCA award tells visitors that the standards of beach management are of the highest quality in the UK.
Ainsdale Beach is now recognised as one of the premier beaches in the UK for extreme kite activities, with zones set aside for kite buggy and landboard use and kitesurfing taking place on the sea.
A permit is required before you use a power kite in the kite zone.
The Ainsdale Discovery Centre, situated adjacent to the beach and Ainsdale & Birkdale Sandhills Local Nature Reserve, provides local information, a classroom facility, venue for events and free cycle hire .
Open during the summer, you are welcome to pop in and see the shell collection and find out what wildlife there is to see and maybe have a go at a family activity.
Ainsdale Beach and nature reserve are popular with schools and colleges for educational visits and provide a venue for a variety of events throughout the year.
Please take note of beach safety flags and signage.
Codes of conduct available.
No Lifeguard cover.
Ainsdale Beach is managed by Sefton Coast and Countryside Service.
