Head on outdoors with the whole family and visit Formby Beach and Nature Reserve.

With towering sand dunes and peaceful pinewoods lining the way, this is an idyllic spot for an outdoor adventure. Home to endangered red squirrels only the best explorers will be able to spot them. Mini historians will love searching for prehistoric footsteps in the mud and sand. Look for endangered species like the Natterjack Toad and the Northern Dune Tiger Beetle. Maybe even try learning outdoors and enroll at the children’s university. Take park in the parks international treasure hunt and find the hidden geocaches and see what you discover.

Family favourites like building sandcastles and hide and seek are a must. Whatever you all decide to do with your day, we are certain everyone will not want to leave.
