No longer used by naturists

Satnav: L37 2EB

No longer used by naturists due to Police/Council hostility.

Reports suggest that the sand dunes at Formby Point (a short distance south of Ainsdale Dunes) were once suitable for naturist use, but there is a history of an anti-nudity attitude from the Local Council.

Sefton Council and other local land owners have decided to take action against naturists, because they claim that there is a serious problem with [inappropriate activity] - hence the notorious "Operation Crow" that took place in 2005.

A warning sign against nudity is displayed in the official Sefton Council car park at Lifeboat Road.

"Merseyside Police work in co-operation with all the landowners in arresting any nude people on Sefton Beach and in the dunes (which also includes Ravenmeols and Formby Point)."
