Thurstaston beach is largely southwest-facing, made up of sand and shingle, looking out over the River Dee. It’s an estuary beach, so Thurstaston attracts birds and varied marine wildlife, including occasional sightings of basking sharks. The Dee Sailing Club slipway here is also used by cockle fishermen and pleasure boat operators, so there’s plenty to enjoy as a visitor, as well as being the finishing point for the Wirral Coastal Walk.
What the beach means to Bev and Steve.
