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.

just had a little walk along the beach after the hot summers day -very therapeutic! Traffic quiet, weather misty. Then had a drive along the bay looking at the sights

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.

This is not a visitors review - I actually live a stone's throw from this beach, I can see the sea from my window. Marvellous beach for walking and playing with the kids, lovely golden flat sand and with the backdrop of the Lake District there is no finer view to be found. National kitesurfing championships are held here in... More

Just a little village on the western coast, at the beginning of North Walney nature reserve. It has a bus connexion with the city centre.

What a dump! After seeing a seal in the sea and lovely views, the amount of rubbish on the shore is unbelievable. I'm at not sure whether Barrow Council or Natural England (who own the nature reserve there) are responsible for cleaning it up but someone needs to do it. Such a shame as could be a lovely spot!

Avoid this beach at all costs it is rocky and dirty.Pipes and general rubbish were scattered all over the place when we visited on the August Bank Holiday Weekend. I persuaded my husband to drive here on a family visit to Barrow after reading the good reviews on trip advisor. All I can say is if you think this is... More
