Morecambe Bay

Arnside & Silverdale, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Arnside & Silverdale, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Lancaster District

Morecambe Bay is a place with unique wildlife and habitats and a great place for outdoor adventures. The Bay is one of the best places in the UK for a range of high adrenalin outdoor activities from sailing, to powered paragliding, parachuting, windsurfing, mountain biking, horseriding, and kitesurfing. Morecambe Bay stretches from Haverigg in the north to Fleetwood in the south, taking in towns like Morecambe and Lancaster. The headlands and promenades of Morecambe Bay offer spectacular, seascape views; the hardy and adventurous can take a guided walk across the sands; and each and everyone can look up across the tidal sand and mud flats towards the Lake District and the Bowland Fells.

Morecambe Bay has some of the most beautiful walks in Britain. Whatever your fitness levels the Bay offers places that are easily accessed that offer never to be forgotten views. Best views are from Arnside Knott, Hampsfell Hospice, Hoad Hill and Humphrey Head. A number of long distance walking and cycling routes start in the Bay area, including the Way of the Roses (long distance cycle route from Morecambe Bay to Bridlington Bay), Lune Valley Ramble and Wyre Way. If you are looking for something more gentle, then try cycling on Morecambe Promenade or try one of the Cycle and See routes within Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

The Bay also offers opportunities for a range of amazing wildlife experiences, like watching the oystercatchers and other waders march up the shore at Hest Bank, Bolton-le-Sands, in front of the advancing tides, or even looking for seals lazing around the south tip of Walney.
