About Wallasey Beach
A popular bathing beach at the eastern end of the North Wirral Coastal Park and next to the Derby Pool Harvester Bar and Grill. It is an ideal place to enjoy the crispness of the waves. Spot windsurfers and kite surfers flying along the breaks, as if being picked up by the air and made to dance.
