The coast is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, and Southport has a plethora of natural landscapes that literally take your breath away.

The Sefton Coastal Path offers a 22-mile stretch that allows you to soak in the stunning views of sand dunes, marshes, and beaches. The Ribble Estuary National Nature Reserve is a bird watcher's paradise, where you can witness thousands of migratory birds each year.

We have plenty of nature trails you can embark on with the kids, take them on an adventure to find the different species along the coast and nestled in the dunes.

The parks and gardens in Southport boast lush greenery, tranquil lakes, and beautiful flora and fauna, and provide a haven for those looking to unwind and recharge. 

With its vast array of beautiful flora and fauna, it is a paradise for nature lovers. From the miles of sandy beaches to the lush green forests, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
