The North end of the island is a place to walk foot paths well marked popular with wind and kite surfer's most of the year with wind most days in the winter, flat beaches in the summer for paddling or swimming as water does warm up touch, or a nice long walk when tide is out all weather.

One of the nicest views of a sunset you'll get in the UK. It's really quiet and picturesque with the mountainous hills in the background. Beach was pretty good as was the drive there. Lovevly walking routes all around. Locals are really friendly.

Beautiful little bay, hardly anyone there. Kids ran around on the sand Watched the sunset, very nice. Clean place..there is a path to follow if you like walking. Or people just park and sit in their cars watching the sun go in

We went to Walney Island to eat at the Ferry Carvery. We ate and drove the island. Ernse Beach was not well-attended in the middle of the week. Not many visitors. The tide was out and we could see many grounded boats. It looks like the tide must run 10 to 12 feet here.

Earnsea bay is a lovely long streach of sandy beach all though tidal it is safe to swim and play in sand. There is a golf course and a store , a Aerodrome which has a glidiñg school near by.An ideal place for a visit with the mountains of the Lake District has a backdrop.
