I go nearly every week throughout the year. In the summer months you feel like you are Spain on a good day. June 2018 I managed to actually swim at Ainsdale Beach.

What a lovely beach. Very clean. Car parking a little expensive for a short visit, but cheap parking nearby. Parking on the beach is £5 for a full day in a car.
