Everybody knows there’s no better place to be than beside the sea. We’re very lucky in Blackpool to be surrounded by miles of golden sand, enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Taking a dip in the sea, walking the dog along the beach and enjoying a picnic on the sand dunes, are just some of the wonderful things we’re able to do living on the Fylde Coast. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, we can even bask in the sunshine with a spot of beachfront afternoon tea!
On the Fylde Coast, we all like to do our bit to help keep our beaches safe and pleasant, with locals taking part in regular beach-cleaning events. There are four stretches of the Blackpool coast that are designated bathing waters, and eight across the Fylde coast.
In 2015, all four of Blackpool’s bathing waters passed the new European Directive, with Blackpool South being classed as ‘excellent.’

There are many things that make the Lake District the UK’s most popular national park; beautiful landscapes, spectacular scenery, fascinating wildlife, exciting and challenging trails, numerous sparkling lakes and rivers, the list goes on.
