More Information...

Formby beach is a spacious stretch of beach backed by extensive sand dunes giving it a much more rural feel than its neighbours. Beyond the dunes are sweeping coastal pinewoods which are home to the red squirrels. Considering its position between Liverpool and Southport Formby beach surprisingly manages to retain much of its wild feel. Hopefully this will continue for many years as this section of coast is now owned by the National Trust. Low tide at Formby reveals prehistoric mud layers which are constantly being eroded. If you look closely you may be lucky enough to see human and animal footprints which date back from 3,500 to 7,000 years ago.

It's a really lovely beach, it's just a bit of a walk to get to from the car park

What to expect...
