Formby Beach & Red Squirrel Sanctuary

Formby Beach and Red Squirrel Sanctuary is perfect day out for anyone staying at Riverside Holiday Park and Brooklyn Park. Located just a short drive away, this stunning area is home to miles of sandy beach, rugged sand dunes, and a rare population of red squirrels.

The beach at Formby is one of the best in the area, with its vast expanse of sand and sea stretching out all around. Take a stroll along the shoreline and take in the fresh sea air or explore the sand dunes and see if you can spot any of the local wildlife, including the rare and elusive natterjack toad.

At the heart of Formby Beach is the Red Squirrel Reserve, a protected area that is home to one of the few remaining populations of red squirrels in the UK. The adorable squirrels are enjoyable to watch as they scamper about in the trees and forage for food on the forest floor.

Visitors to Formby Beach can also enjoy a range of outdoor activities, including kite flying, birdwatching, and horse riding. There are also several nearby golf courses, as well as a range of shops, cafes, and restaurants.

If you’re looking for a relaxing day out by the sea, or an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the UK’s rarest wildlife, Formby Beach and Red Squirrel Sanctuary must be on your to-do list.
