Thurstaston Beach

Thurstaston Beach

Thurstaston Beach is the first beach along the Wirral's western coast, on the Dee estuary. It has a wide sandy margin at the top backed by subsiding clay cliffs, but a short distance out the shore becomes a mix of sand and mud. The lane (Station Road) from Thurstaston village leads to a (free) car parking area on grass next to the Wirral Way cycle path and near to Thurstaston Visitor Centre. Access to the beach is a short walk to the very end of the lane, from where a path on the right leads to some wooden steps down to the shore.

The area above the beach is mostly parkland and a caravan park. Facilities include a snack bar, picnic tables and toilets. Signs warn against swimming at this beach.

Dogs are allowed at all times. The photo was taken at low tide.
