Set at the northern end of the Wirral Peninsula, Leasowe Bay is a wide, clean sandy beach. Backed by low-lying sand dunes and a hay meadow, the beach has a surprisingly wild feel. There are very little in way of facilities.
Running along the length of the beach is a wide path and there are long sections of rock armour/sea defences. The path forms part of a longer circular route ideal for walking, cycling and even horses
Can be fine to swim when the tide is in and ideal for dog walking and horse riding when its out. At low tide a vast expanse of sand is revealed and it is a considerable walk to reach the water. However, care should be taken as the tide comes in very fast.
Car parking is available at The Gunsite, the location of World War II gun emplacements.
To either end of the beach are golf clubs - Leasowe and Wallasey. Overlooking the western end of Leasowe beach is Leasowe Castle. Built in the late 1500s the castle is now a hotel.

Leasowe Bay Reviews
A peaceful haven
Good parking facilities and very accessible. Beaches are clean and almost empty of people. Wonderful walks in both directions.
Too many dogs!
The worlds biggest dog toilet! What a shame what used to be a really pleasant place for a stroll has become unbearable. The place is just overrun with dogs. Hundreds of them at any given time. It is impossible to have a walk or a quiet sit without being hassled by them. Dare to show your displeasure and you will likely face a hostile aggressive response from an owner who feels that their dog has the right to disturb others.
There is dog crap everywhere - you really have to watch where you are walking every step of the way.
Put simply there are too many dogs. Some thought needs to be given to providing dog free areas.

Ok beach but nobody bothers to empty the bins so there is rubbish all next to it. Also no toilets or anywhere to get food or drink.
