The beach here is amazing, it's clean and beautiful, compared to most in the UK. It's a shame the foreshore is being washed away. It's a sign of the times I suppose but it doesn't make it any less acceptable. I spent a great deal of my youth here and look forward to spending time here with my grandchildren.

It was very cold and windy during our visit and the area seemed very desolate. The tide was out and a car was stranded in the sand. A guy walked out to it and was taking photos. We were told there used to be a road to North Walney nature reserve, but the high tide had washed it away. We... More

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.
