Explore Morecambe Bay – a great place to experience amazing sunsets, discover natural landscapes and unearth your adventurous side with an incredible range of exhilarating outdoor activities. The Bay is one of the best places in the UK for high adrenalin outdoor activities from sailing, to powered paragliding, parachuting, windsurfing, mountain biking, horseriding, and kitesurfing.

Morecambe Bay stretches from the south west coast of Cumbria to Fleetwood in Lancashire, taking in coastal towns such as Grange Over Sands, Morecambe and Heysham. The headlands of Morecambe Bay offer spectacular, seascape views; the hardy and adventurous can experience a guided walk across the sands, taking in the wide-open vistas across the tidal sand and mud flats towards the Lake District and the Bowland Fells.

Morecambe Bay has some of the most beautiful coastline in Britain and 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), and the Lancashire Coastal 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.

With golden sandy beaches, and plenty for children and adults alike to discover, Morecambe Bay is the perfect place to relax, explore and enjoy.
