Season: autumn

This beach is separated from the town by a dune system and a National Trust Reserve, Formby Pinewoods, which has red squirrels and neolithic remains.  There’s a large car park behind the dunes, so access is good.  It’s an attractive, sandy beach, popular with visitors, walkers and fishermen.  There is a designated dog exercise area and Formby beach forms part of the Sefton Coast Site of Special Scientific Interest.
