Wallasey Beach is a wide beach of sand on the Wirral's northern coast. It is backed mostly by a concrete sea wall and promenade, and there is plenty of (free) roadside parking nearby. Lifeguards patrol from the end of May until the end of August (10am to 6pm) daily and a few weekends either side. Dogs are allowed at all times. Facilities include toilets, a family pub and a railway station (Wallasey Grove Road) about 300 yards away. At low tide the sea retreats over a mile revealing extensive sandbars which can be a hazard to the unsuspecting visitor.
