Sand in your toes, sea breeze in your hair and ice creams never far away – who doesn’t love a day at the seaside? Culture Trip’s local insiders have surfed, rambled and swam in an attempt to find the best beaches near Liverpool for you to enjoy. From driftwood pirate ships to Victorian gardens, seal-spotting and haunted lighthouses, a day at these beaches won’t disappoint.
Backed by a small bay, a promenade and sand dunes, the beaches of Leasowe Bay are a quieter option than their Liverpool counterparts. With open views of the Irish Sea and Leasowe Castle, it is popular with surfers and is home to the UK’s oldest brick lighthouse, complete with rumours of paranormal activity.

You’ll find nearly a mile of golden sand at New Brighton Beach, as well as unbeatable views of the Liverpool skyline. Take the kids to the Black Pearl, a pirate ship made entirely of driftwood, and let their inner Jack Sparrow run wild. It’s best to visit on a clear day to make the most of that view across the Mersey. Recommended by local insider Matthew Caffrey
