What can I say about Earnse bay that hasn't already been said? Well I'm sure no ones ever said that the sand here has magical healing properties, so I'll say that.

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.
