It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to walk around this lake but there are rarely any boats sailing and so it is just a seaside walk, bracing with waves from the sea threatening you when its windy. Sadly there seems little else unless the...More

West Kirby Marine Lake is a great place to visit, and walk around. It only takes about 20 minutes to walk around it’s perimeter. Lovely in all weathers with views over to Hilbre island and North Wales.

I've not taken a boat out on the lake, however, it's a lovely place for a stroll. Can be combined with a longer walk to Hilbre or the Wirral Way. Sunset can be very nice

Great place to visit for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just people watching as they enjoy a leisurely stroll along the promenade and around the perimeter of the lake. Recognised as one of the best places in the UK for watching spectacular sunsets.
