Formby Beach

by Lydia (follow)
A glorious beach with dramatic sand dunes

Formby Beach is a National Trust site and a dream to explore. If you want a secluded, quiet beach then this is the place for you. Formby has an amazing and ever changing landscape and it offers a fantastic day trip for all. Here you will find rare wildlife, prehistoric footprints and miles of coastal walks which are just waiting to be discovered.



One of our favourite walks here is the Formby Red Squirrel Walk as it enables you to explore the beautiful woodlands here, which are home to the native red squirrel. The walk is 2.9km in total and is a very easy trail and so is perfect for little legs. We spent an hour walking amongst the pines. The Formby Asparagus Trail is also worth trying for those families with young children, as it is 2.8km in length. Here you get to wander through crop fields and will discover how a spring vegetable shaped what Formby is today.





During peak periods, ice creams, soft drinks and snacks are available from ice cream vans in the woodland and beach car park at Victoria Road, and in the car park at Lifeboat Road. There are also a series of picnic benches and picnic areas for you to enjoy. Well behaved dogs are welcome at Formby and you will see lots on your travels. There are toilets at Victoria Road and these are open during the car park opening hours. There is also an information trailer near the picnic area at Victoria Road, this is manned at certain times of the day.



They hold a number of events throughout the year at Formby and they run special school holiday sessions too. This summer they will be doing a series of events, which include; Family footprints at Formby, Rock free rock pooling, Welly walk and Treasures and castles.
