Situated on the western coast of Cumbria, St Bees Beach is a mile long stretch of golden sand and pebbles. The beach offers breath-taking views of St Bees Head, a red sandstone cliff which juts into the Irish Sea.

St Bees Head is an RSPB nature reserve which houses the northwest’s only colony of cliff-nesting seabirds. Bird enthusiasts can visit the reserve for spectacular views of the colony from three viewing points, and you can expect to see fulmars, guillemots, kittiwakes, and more.

Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk begins at St Bees Head and ends at Robin Hood’s Bay on the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors.
