Hoylake Beach is a quiet stretch of beach, perfect to exploring the local wildlife with your children in the sunshine and an ideal place to fly a kite.
It's just a five minute walk from the train station and there’s plenty of free parking nearby.

Hoylake's position at the mouth of the Dee Estuary means that it is a bird-watcher's paradise.
A short walk along Hoylake shore lies an area known as Red Rocks where rock pools support a small population of natterjack toads.
Wild flowers, butterflies and skylarks can all be found in the sand dunes there.The kids can also explore a driftwood pirate ship - the Grace Darling.
But you must also take car as Hoylake Beach is prone to pockets of quicksand, so you should stay to the clearly marked areas only.
And even though Hilbre Island looks close enough to Hoylake to walk across to at low tide, the tides can rush in very quickly.
If you do want to visit Hilbre Island on foot you should check the tide times and start out from West Kirby instead.
