aSituated within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Red Rake Beach and Cove is Morecombe Bay’s hidden gem. More so, beach offers panoramic views of Morecombe Bay and South Lakeland. Furthermore, in Silverdale Cover there was an old Tin Mine. Which meant iron ore and copper ore were once mined here.
However, the entrance to the mine and small jetty that once were there have now collapsed. In addition, the beach and cove are home to beautiful scenery, gorgeous and interesting wildlife and incredible views.
Red Rake beach and cove also contain a small cave which is popular amongst visitors. Morecombe Bay is notorious for its quicksand and fast-moving tides, so we recommend that you check online and consult a lifeguard before walking along the sand at low tide.
More information about the beach can be found here.
