The Coast in Fleetwood

Sea Front

Here you are at the sea front, this is the Irish Sea. You can walk along the pebbly beach here, but make sure you follow the safety signs.

It’s a great opportunity to see what you can spot - bits of seaweed, unusual shells and driftwood – all with the sea roaring in the background!

Treasures of the beach

The beach holds many natural treasures

If you look out to sea, you may just see Wyre Light, the third lighthouse that was built when Fleetwood was founded. It helped give ships a light to navigate to and then be brought into port. It’s about two miles out, so you’ll need a clear day or a pair of binoculars to see it clearly.

Walk along the sea front, heading towards the pier. As you get nearer the pier you will see some colourful beach chalets. What a view their residents get!

Fleetwood Pier

You will eventually get to Fleetwood Pier. This was opened in 1906 and went up for sale for £1.3million in June 2005.

Follow the path round, up the side of the pier, leading back up to the main road (promenade).
