Heysham (Half Moon Bay) Beach

Season: autumn

Half Moon Bay, just north of the harbour, is the more popular of Heysham’s two beaches.  This is large and sandy at low tide, with plenty of room for dogs to run all year round.  The town is interesting to visit, particularly the old church and its graveyard. Ferries ply their trade to the Isle of Man and Northern Ireland from here and there’s parking available close to the beach.  Both Morecambe and Lancaster are within striking distance for shopping trips, if needed.
