Rossall Beach

Rossall Beach occupies the northern section of the promenade at Cleveleys. A good sized stretch of sand and shingle, the beach here has an altogether more natural, and somewhat wilder feel than the town’s main seafront

Up towards the seawall the beach mainly consists of pebbles, but these quickly give way to some soft sand as the tide drops. Towards lower tide there is a good-sized expanse of flat sand.

There are some great views from Rossall Beach; on clear days it is easy to make out the hills and mountains of the Lake District in the distance, while to the south you’ll have no problem spotting Blackpool Tower. The beach is also a great spot for sunsets as the sun dips down beyond the Irish Sea.

I love to walk this side of the beach and I can take my dog with me no matter which month it is . When the tide is out there is many rock pools for youngsters and plenty of sandy beach past the pebbles. Wind surfers can be seen when it’s not to calm. The sunset is amazing to watch as it dips into the sea of orange and red on a clear night. This is my happy place x
