Wide flat sandy beach cracking view of the hills. View is spoiled by the wind farm. On the plus side you can see the Isle of Man when conditions allow, especially spectacular as the sun goes down behind it.. Accessible via regular bus service, large car park

Lovely sandy beach, you have to traverse a line of pebbles to get to. Popular with kite surfers. The road has now been restored after last winters storms. Large nature reserve at the north end of the island.

Once you close your eyes to the horrors of Barrow, you can enjoy a wonderful, bracing walk away from it all.

A beach on the top end of Walney backed by the new line of boulders to prevent sea erosion. A large free car park and public toilets plus a parking area over looking the beach. Nice views of Black Combe and of the Isle of Man which the wind turbines block.

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.
