Due to predicted high tides and strong winds, Sefton Council has closed Ainsdale beach for car parking. This will reopen on Sunday 28 December, or earlier if the weather conditions improve.

Some parking is available at the Ainsdale Discovery Centre and Lifeboat Road Car Park in Formby remains open with boardwalk access to the beach.

As a general guide, parking is unavailable at Ainsdale Beach when tides of 9.5m and over are predicted.

Please note the beaches can be closed to parking at other times for reasons such as severe weather or organised events. See our Beaches page for further information and advice when visiting the area.
