Holidays in Ainsdale Beach

Holiday Travel Guide
Ainsdale Beach featuring a sandy beach, kite surfing and general coastal views

Walk along the sandy dunes of this picturesque beach in England for a great view of the sunset at the end of the day.

Visit Ainsdale Beach in the charming English town of Southport for incredible views and plenty of activities. Watch colorful kites soar through the sky or grab a shovel and a pail and build a sandcastle in the summer months.

The northwest of England isn’t particularly known for its stunning beaches, but that makes Ainsdale Beach an even more important spot for locals and tourists. Discover its miles of sandy walks and note that it has a Blue Flag status, signifying high standards of beach management. This is a must-visit stop for any traveler passing through the area.

What you do at Ainsdale Beach depends completely on how you prefer to spend your day. If you are looking for some quiet time, aim to visit at low tide, when there are vast expanses of sand to wander across. Sunset is a particularly beautiful time of the day to come, too. Wrap up warm and settle down with a picnic to watch the bright yellows and oranges dip below the horizon.

Let your kids play in the sand dunes or take them to the Ainsdale Discovery Centre right at the entrance to the beach. Here, they will learn about the local wildlife and how the locals are helping to preserve the environment.

One of the most unique offerings at Ainsdale Beach is its kite surfing. Because of the wind conditions, this is often the perfect place for extreme athletes to practice their kitesurfing and use their kite buggies. Come to watch them perform tricks and practice their skills.

Ainsdale Beach is walking distance from Ainsdale Railway Station if you choose to use public transportation. Try to rent a car if you plan on exploring the surrounding area, as this will make it far easier. You can park in the metered parking area close to the beach.

Note that dogs are allowed on the beach, and the closest amenities, including bathrooms and stores, are located nearby in the local village.
