Meols Beach - Merseyside

© Sue Adair and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

Meols lies on the Wirral Peninsula, between Hoylake and Wallasey, just off the A553. At low tide the small stretch of shingle beach here becomes a wide expanse of sand and mudflats.

Sandbuggying and horse riding are popular here, and in the winter months this can be a good place to go birdwatching.

From the shoreline there are views out into Liverpool Bay, and the beach can get some lovely sunsets.

The 4-mile long North Wirral Coastal Park runs from Meols Dove Point to the King's Parade at New Brighton. The park, which is The Wirral's largest park area, provides a good open space, with acres of dunes, common land and foreshore. It is popular with cyclists, joggers and picnickers.
