Rules
Zones

Please abide by usual kiting rules. You must kite between the lifeguard tower and the lighthouse also leave 300m clear of rock sea defenses as they are a roosting bird site. Be cautious of the tide you must stay a minimum of 100 m from sea wall at high tide. On anything over 8.5m tide the water will come up to the wall. Also landboarding is now prohibited on the beach as there is too much activity on the beach. Landboarding has been moved to Meols which is much quieter and safer location.

Nightlife

The Liverpool city center is only 1 mile and a tunnel ride away.
