With the days beginning to get longer and the weather starting to warm up, it is the perfect opportunity to get outside and enjoy the fresh air with our loved ones.

If you are looking for some fun and family-friendly activities to do in Morecambe but are not sure where to start, we thought we would take a closer look at some of our favourites:

Explore the Bay Cycle Way

When it comes to getting outdoors and enjoying some fresh air, the Bay Cycle Way is a wonderful option. With over 80 miles of mostly flat terrain to explore, the route is perfect for all ages and explores everywhere from Morecombe all the way along the Lancashire coastline.

Spot some Wildlife at Morecombe Bay Nature Reserve

Morecombe Bay is a popular destination for migratory birds and so a great place to spot waders and roosters! Two hours before and after high tides can be a good time to see more birds. So if you are an avid twitcher or just enjoy being closer to nature, a trip to the Bay with a bird log book can be a fun hobby that gets you outdoors.

Catch a Big One

If you want to relax while enjoying some outside time, then Morecambe is also a great spot for fans of fishing. The Bay area offers plenty of places to set up during the summer months, and there are a huge array of different species that call the waters home. Why not call one of the local Fishing Tackle shops, Gerry’s Fishing on Marine Road is always happy to give local advice.

Take in the Views

Finally, another ideal spot in Morecambe is the iconic Stone Jetty. Built-in the 1850s, the Jetty offers some of the finest views in the area, allowing visitors to see across the bay and over the rolling hills of the Lake District. The jetty also has fun pavement games including a maze, and a word search, as well as a cafe for a cup of tea and a cake stop.
