St Annes Beach

St Annes Beach is a few miles down the coast from Blackpool and St Anne’s is a great contrast to the bustling Blackpool Beaches.

The beach is very long, and when the tide is out it can take a long walk to get to the sea. It also often seems as though the tide never comes in.

Facilities at the beach include parking, toilets, beach hut rental, food options and pier.

St Annes Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

Dog Friendly Beach?

St Annes Beach has dog restrictions.
St Annes beach, dogs not allowed on the stretch between the old pier and the cinema, May 1st to September 30th.
