When you think of the Lake District your mind conjours up images of mountains and lakes. Well, much to my surprise, the Lake District has a well kept secret as I have discovered that the beaches are spectacular too….
My tour of Barrow District with work took in several beaches on our patch, all of which were breathtaking with vast swathes of sand, bounded with mountainous views and largely empty. Keen to share this secret with my family, we headed to Earnse Bay on the south western shores of Walney Island this weekend to stretch our legs and blow away the cobwebs.
Apparently Earnse Bay hosts the kite surfing championships on the vast sandy beach. Definitely one to look out for next year as I am sure that would be a spectacle worth seeing.
Who knew Barrow-In-Furness had all this to offer….. shhhhhhh don’t tell everyone!!!!
