With over 8 miles of golden sands, St. Annes and Blackpool have plenty to boast about. whether you enjoy building sandcastles, taking a paddle or lazing in the sun the sun, there is something for everyone to enjoy and best of all – it’s FREE!

Here are Merlewood’s top suggestions:

SANCASTLES . . .

sandcastles

. . . what better than creating your own sand fortress or an amazing beach sculpture.
Great fun for anyone who is young a heart!

PADDLE . . .

paddle

. . . it may not be the warmest of tropical seas but a little splash in the shallows
will certainly be exhilarating!

SUNBATHE . . .

Dunes

. . . as we have talked about on this site before, our coast does have a unique microclimate meaning we can be basking in golden sunshine when a few miles along the coast or inland they can be having a dull day. If there is a breeze you can always find a sheltered spot amongst our miles of sand dunes!

PICNIC . . .

picnic

. . . nothing beats a family picnic on the beach with sand in your sandwiches. Grab a packed lunch before you leave Merlewood or pick up a take-away from one of our award winning fish and chip shops or from the Deckhouse Café on the pier and enjoy some al fresco dining. The sea air is guaranteed to make you hungry! Just ask and we will recommend places for you to try.

PLAY . . .

kite flying

. . . whether it is an impromptu barefoot kick-about, a family cricket match or just flying a kite, there are miles of golden coastline to take advantage of. Plenty of space to throw a Frisbee or two!
