Attraction Information

Escape the boring everyday with an action-packed day of exploring at Formby Beach near Liverpool!

This spacious beach has a rather rural feel. It's surrounded by sand dunes with lucious pinewoods just beyond. Feeling adventurous? Take a walk into the woods and spot some wildlife, including adorable red squirrels and the nationally endangered Natterjack Toad.

A lazy day at the beach is a firm family favourite either way. So just unwind and enjoy the sun to the sound of kids playing and waves washing on the shore with a quiet “Woosh”. You don't even need to leave Formby Beach to see something exciting. At low tide you could see prehistoric human and animal footprints, dating back to 3,500 to 7,000 years ago.

  • Authentic rural atmosphere
  • Chance to spot rare wildlife
  • Prehistoric footprints visible at low tide
