Where is Arnside Beach?

Situated within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cumbria is Arnside Beach. It lies on the east bank of the Kent Estuary. The beach offers sweeping views across Morecombe Bay, and the undulating landscape of the Lake District towers over the horizon. In the distance, there is a  viaduct, and the views are known to be quite picturesque.

What can you expect at Arnside Beach?

Known for its quicksand and fast-moving tides, we recommend that you refrain from walking along the beach without the expertise of a local guide. The sandy part of the beach is totally unsuitable for walking and playing due the presence of dangerous quicksand. 

Every few weeks, a fast-moving tidal wave sweeps across Arnside Beach. An alarm sounds 15-20 minutes before the wave, known as ‘The Bore’, is due.

For those looking for even better views then look no further than the bay during sunsets as you will definitely get a beautiful view that is worth your whille.

The beach is not very accessible for people with mobility needs and of course the presence of quicksand means extra risk to those who are vulnerable.
