Large sandy beach backed by high sea wall.
9th May 2004
|Crosby has a large sandy beach with a high sea wall behind it.
As with other beaches in this area, it also has a large tidal range and conditions are dependent upon the state of the tide. It is good for windsurfing and kitesurfing although there are no real waves for surfing.
The best place to sail from is the car park by the lifeboat station and although most states of the tide can be sailed, it can be a long walk to the water at low tide and on big high tides the water comes right up to the sea wall making access to the water difficult. It is however a good location for generally blasting around, especially in southerly winds. It doesn't get busy here and you are likely to be the only person out sailing.
Lifeguards are on duty in the summer and there is parking and cafes nearby.

"Another Place" installation on Crosby Foreshore stops water access!
Just found this piece of information that I thought should be shared
You may not be aware but the Crosby coastline is now closed to all
watersports. The South Sefton Development Trust, having "consulted" with
local water users ( the word bollocks springs to mind here) have now
installed a "sculpture" in the form of 100 life-size cast-iron figures in
the sea which are revealed at various states of the tide. The area closed
is from Seaforth docks all the way up to the river Alt. The installation
will be in place until November 2006 and if you wish to go and see them
bear in mind that in response to the "large number of visitors the project
will bring to the area" Sefton council have closed the only public toilets
by the coastguard station.
SSD have shown utter contempt for water users. The only good news is that
the Crosby marine Park Rangers are spending all their time trying to stop
the figures being vandalised. Obviously I cannot condone vandalism such as
undoing the mounting bolts, spray painting, or cross-dressing the
What do you think?
If you feel strongly you might like to let SSD know: South Sefton
