Southport Beach


Do you prefer coastal views to city skyscrapers?

Do you love to feel the sand between your toes and wind through your hair?

Does relaxing on the beach sound appealing?

If you answered 'yes' to these then Southport beach is perfect for you!

You can leave the hustle & bustle of the town behind, walk five minutes and be standing at the end of the country’s second longest pier with nothing but coastal views and the peace, tranquillity and relaxation this brings.

Stunning coastline and amazing views!

Southport beach really does boast some of the most amazing views of the coast.

With long sandy beaches and a coast-line that stretches 22 miles across Sefton, you can soak up the panoramic view of golden sands and admire the beauty of the coast!

Whether it is on the beach or at the end of the Pier, we are confident you will be enthralled by what you see.

Build memories with the family!

If you are looking for places to take the family without breaking the bank, Southport beach has all you need for an amazing day out!

Whether you want to build sandcastles, fly a kite, play with a beach ball or paddle in the safe bathing water, we are sure you won’t be disappointed with a trip to the beach.

What's more, you can park on the beach most days so you can have all your belongings at your fingertips - no more walking for miles and miles to a car park on the edge of town!

Also, Southport beach is only a short walk from the town centre so you are never too far away from restaurants, hotels, B&Bs, shops and other attractions and things to do.

In a unique space watch nature unfold

Southport beach has one of the most unique natural environments in the country.

It’s the gateway to the coast and the Ribble Estuary and a place where the coast & countryside connect in one of the most amazing ways.

If you enjoy walking you will fall in love with the paths and trails thorough the dunes.

Exploring one of the largest areas of undeveloped dunes in the UK uncovers a plethora of flora and fauna.

Or if sitting back and watching is more your cup of tea, Southport beach is home to wading birds and gulls and a great place to bird watch.

Southport beach is a place where sea and sand are in harmony with nature and countryside - a rare combination that will bring enjoyment for young and old alike!

Traditional seaside!

If you fancy a spot of traditional seaside fun, a trip down memory lane where nostalgic feelings come flooding back, you can guarantee Southport has it all.

A trip on the Pier Tram to the Pavilion with antique penny slot machines, traditional seaside amusements and rides for the little ones at Silcock’s Funland plus a stop for some fish and chips - means there’s no chance the children will get bored!

There is always something to do!

As well as being home to the Southport Air Show in September, there are many other coastal events throughout the year.

From beach-combing with the little ones to collect shells or guided historic walks along the coast.

Southport beach is only a 10 minute walk from Southport train station with good rail links in from the North West.

Both the seafront and beach are easily accessible whether you want to use your car or not.

So what are you waiting for!
