Cracking little bay

Cracking little bay, we climbed over the rocks and onto the beach and walked up and down in the oncoming tide looking for crabs and 'little fishies'. Great views, no bingo halls... read more

Lovely beach to swim, make sandcastles, sunbathe or (as many do!) wind surf!! We often drive up here to watch the sunset. There are toilets near by which is handy - and in the summer, there is often a mobile ice-cream van there :) I recommend you take a deck chair and a good book!! Don't forget your sunnies!! :)

Cracking little bay, we climbed over the rocks and onto the beach and walked up and down in the oncoming tide looking for crabs and 'little fishies'. Great views, no bingo halls, fun fairs or karaoke bars there's not even a shop or an ice cream van, just Mother Nature doing what she does best.

After the repairs of storm damage the road past the caravan site is now open allowing access to the northern parts of the bay. Lots of pebbles but wide expanses of clean sand as the tide goes out.

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.
