    Prom fountain

    Favorite thing: Its a lovely stroll along the promenade, watching the various beach activities such as the kite flying and sand yachts. Here's a view of the promenade through an old water fountain (no longer functional).

    Promenade

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Along the promenade are many large houses - most are retirement homes (Hoylake has an elederly population) for those who enjoy the seaviews. Some of the architecture is quite ornate......perhaps over the top??

    Hoylake beach

    Favorite thing: The beach is sandy and there's plenty of it when the tide is out - makes a great place to stretch out on our few sunny days we have each year. Fortunately for August Bank Holiday weekend was hot and along with the lifeboat open day it brought the people out.

    Hoylake shore

    Favorite thing: If you've see my West Kirby page then you'll know a favourite stroll of mine is the path from the beach to Red Rocks - well it is from here that you have a good view of the shore of Hoylake the next town to my home town.

    Coastal Park

    map of coastal park

    Favorite thing: The North Wirral Coastal Park is a linear park running 4 miles from Dove Point at Meols and the Kings Parade at New Brighton. It cover some 400 acres in area, making it Wirral's largest park. For the sights which can be seen along the way...check out the off the beaten path section on this page.

    Fondest memory: The North Wirral Coast or Foreshore is one of the country's top sites for wildlife particularly wading birds visiting during the winter or on migration in autumn or spring; in recognition of this it has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Birds that can commonly be seen, particularly as the tide floods in, are Oystercatcher, Redshank, Dunlin, Sanderling, Turnstone, Lapwing, Bar-tailed Godwit and Curlew. These birds visit the North Wirral foreshore because of the high numbers of fish, worms, crustaceans etc. that are found in the sand and mud. Commonly found are Shore Crabs, Shrimps, Prawns, Lugworm and Ragworm,Cockles, Tellin and Peppery Furrow shells, and such fish as Gobies, Blennies, Sole, Plaice, Flounder, Dab and Pipefish.

    microlites on hoylake beach

    Favorite thing: The beach was a great place for the microlite club to land on and watching them take off in formation at the end of the lifeboat day was quite interesting.
