Add Formby Beach to your Itinerary

Formby Beach

Formby Beach is ideal for families, with a large car park, picnic areas and waymarked paths to the beach, dunes and woods.

The high dunes afford excellent views across the Irish Sea and on clear days after rain, even the mountains of Cumbria can be seen.

The coast here is undergoing erosion and the tides often reveal prehistoric mud layers, some of which contain human and animal footprints.

Look out for these the length of Formby Beach from Lifeboat Road northwards of the National Trust property.

Lifeboat Road and Formby Beach are managed by Sefton Coast and Countryside Service.

Please take note of beach safety flags and signage.

Codes of conduct available.

No Lifeguard cover.
