2017 saw another Seaside Award for St Annes Pier Beach, for its cleanliness and suitability for family visits.
Seaside Awards are presented by national charity Keep Britain Tidy to the best beaches in England and celebrate the quality and diversity of our coastline.
Seaside Award for St Annes Pier Beach
St Annes Pier Beach has retained it’s award for 2017. That’s based on a number of factors including
- water quality,
- beach management,
- the lack of litter
- proximity to holiday facilities such as toilets, bins and gardens.
St Annes Pier Beach and the surrounding area is loved by tens of thousands of visitors who come here each week in the summer. This award confirms that visitors will arrive at a beach which is well looked after.
Great efforts have been made in recent decades to improve water quality along the whole of the Fylde Coast. The sea is now cleaner than it has ever been in living memory. There’s a huge beach to explore here because of the wide tidal range.
There is also a dedicated group of volunteers who patrol the beach to collect litter – and all residents are grateful for their efforts.
It’s great to get official confirmation that St Annes is a good place to visit. We’re delighted that St Annes has won this award.
When you’ve enjoyed exploring the miles of golden sand, why don’t you take a walk along St Annes Pier too?
