Time to enjoy the great outdoors
Nestled amongst the sand and the dunes is an amazing mix of wildlife and nature, including many rare and interesting species.
Starting at Southport beach, Marshside RSPB is a haven for bird watchers; there are two hides, a viewing platform and three viewing screens. In the summer spot nesting birds like avocets and lapwings and in the winter the skies will be filled with pink footed geese and wigeons.
Along to the wildlife haven in Southport, the Queens Jubilee Nature Trail where the oldest of the dunes are now covered in willow scrub and are home to different orchids and wildlife.
Delve further in to the shipwrecks and prehistoric footprints which lay trapped for thousands of years in sediment beds and Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ installation on Crosby beach which offers the biggest open air art gallery in the country.
Time to escape
Take a walk along the oldest iron pier in the country where at the end you will see nothing but coastal views for miles that will literally take your breath away.
Climb through the dramatic dunes at Formby to be met with the most beautiful beach surrounded by sweeping pine woods and the famous red squirrel.
With 22 miles of coast to explore, whether it is walking the dog, going to an early morning run or walking along the beach, there is plenty of open space to do that.
Time for fun
Ainsdale beach is a haven for extreme kite activities. Imagine time with the family having fun with a kite buggy or landboard in the sea.
Formby beach is ideal for paddling in the sea and on the hottest of days the beach is full of families enjoying the wide open space, playing beach ball, exploring the dunes and relaxing.
The coast is an ideal place to get away from it all and we have plenty of coast to enjoy and dunes to explore.
