Quiet and private

A bit of the beaten track down a narrow lane but worth the detour. No crowds, no noise, no problems.

This is one of the biggest stretches of sandy beaches in the area. The wind surfing world championships have been held here. Miles and miles of flat sand.

It's a well kept secret in Barrow in Furness that Earnse Bay is not much short of heaven on earth. True, there are no angelic choirs, divine instructions from on high or bars which are open 24/7, but what it lacks for heavenly stereotypes it makes up for with sea, sky, coastline and windfarms. And the brooding Cumbrian mountains in... More

I live in Manchester but grew up on Walney, I've spent many happy hours here as a kid playing on the sand,walking the dog and windsurfing. Sometimes it's a great place just to sit in the car and watch the waves break, whenever I get the chance I visit and last week I took the kids for a walk along... More

This is the beach I grew up next to. This is one of the most beautiful and picturesque parts of the peninsula on its day. On a calm day the walk along the sands can while away a tranquil couple of hours (it's much bigger and longer than you first think). On wilder days the waves crash against the breaks... More

We visited here on a beautiful day in July. The kids loved splashing in the sea and climbing over the rocks looking for fish and crabs. We didn't get to see any seals but we didn't see any rubbish either.

The best place to go to marvel at one of Furness's spectacular sunsets. Parking is free and the beach, a mixture of stones and sand, provides a grandstand view of the action. Popular with locals and visitors alike. Black Combe, the highest hill in the district, overlooks the scene to the north. In clear weather, the Isle of Man is... More

Love sitting on the beach front and watching the kite surfers. Certainly some spectacular views. Not really beach for sun bathing, very pebbly, but great in wind and winter, when can see spectacular waves.
