Hightown Beach

Season: autumn

Hightown is a small sand and shingle beach, running either side of the River Alt estuary and backed by a dune system and Hightown itself.  To the south is Blundellsands Sailing Club and to the north is Formby.  The beach has no formal parking or facilities, so the best approach is to park on the road in the town and arrive via the dunes.  There is a sailing club based on the river and the beach is popular with dog walkers, nature lovers and ramblers, being non-commercial and unspoilt.
