Roan Head Beach - Cumbria

Picturesque sandy expanse located around 3 miles north of Barrow-in-Furness. Big tidal range exposes huge sandy flats but also causes strong currents making it unsuitable for swimming.

The beach here is an important nature reserve which is home to numerous rare plants and insects along with an estimated 15% of the UK's natterjack toad population.
