Lifeboat Road site:
1½ miles from the town centre; there are three linked unpaved car parks with several routes cascading out in to the sand dunes and woods. The car parks are about 900 yards from the beach.
Victoria Road site:
North of Lifeboat Road and is busier due to the red squirrel reserve being here. Parking is available adjacent to the reserve and at the end of the road there is a large unpaved car park for easier beach access, the beach from the car park is about 100 yards.
Dogs are welcome year round but must be kept on a lead due to wildlife.
Do you have a local business to Formby Beach? If yes then why not sponsor the beach on Coast Radar for as little as £20 per year.
Our editors will work with you to add natural text, banners and link to the main beach description above, we will then push this out on our facebook page and our twitter feed. This is ideal for any local business, for example a surf school that operates from the beach or a cafe that overlooks the beach. Drop us an email and we can discuss opportunities.
