Fairhaven Lake is one of the borough's most popular attractions. Nestled between Lytham and St Anne's, a salt water lake, positioned directly on the coast next to Granny's Bay and Stanner Bank. Enjoy the many recreational facilities provided, motorboat, canoe and rowing boat hire. For the less adventurous there is an electrically powered motor launch, enjoy the cruise and enjoy the scenery from the launch on a 10-15 min cruise. Lakeside facilities include a cafe and the RSPB Discovery Centre. The lake is one of the most important wildfowl locations in Europe, with a group of more than 250 Canada Geese, several Swans (including a solitary Black one) and many coots, water hens and other smaller fowl.

Large lake with a path that runs around it, together with a cafe overlooking the lake. Car park alongside. Ideal setting on either hot or cold days and good for a visit

For the first time in my life I tried the Fairhaven Boating Lake... It was the exeprience of a lifetime. My grandson, who many speaks Dutch, loved the 'Auto-Boats'! Highly recomended for anyone with a two year old to entertain!

I would think so if they're healthy. It's a mile and a half on the flat, so should take around half an hour each way.

Yes, there is good access for wheelchairs. You will need to use the entrance at the side next to the childrens' play area rather than the entrance at the front which has steps. The cafe is also dog friendly inside and out.
