“Massive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

A beach you can drive on- wow! A bit costly, but well worth it, a massive beach with some great views out to Wales one way, and Blackpool the other. Plent of dunes as well. Could do with a couple of shops nearby though.

Great for walks and expecially for giving dogs exercise. Park on beach. Visited in evenings and no charge.

“Gorgeous beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Possibly my fave beach in the UK. We love to go up there to watch sunset in the summer when its quiet hardly any cars on the beach and also its free to go on when we arrive around 7.
Its juts as pretty in the day it cost us £4 for all day in Easter hols. Much busier however still plenty of room for walking and paying etc. Ice cream van expensive though !
This is a lovely clean beach which you can drive on and park up and have a picnic but no BBQs allowed

“Gorgeous beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

We spent the whole day on the beach last week as it was warm and sunny, and in comparison to the southport one, this was much cleaner with really nice sand.

Huge beach, even with the tide in there was still ample space for cars and games.

There is also a food van, and although rather over priced, i suppose it is expected with these food outlets, but the food was ok/standard.

There is a pontins just offsite (open to public) with other food options and shops to buy anything you may need.

With the nice weather, you could have been absolutely anyehere in the world, and this is probably one of the nicest beaches in the uk by far.
