On this non-bathing beach, there are areas of soft sand and mud and a risk of changing tides. However, visitors can walk along the beach and the coastal path and take in spectacular views of the sea, the Wirral and North Wales. Visitors come from far and wide to see Antony Gormley’s Another Place
– a hundred cast iron life-sized figures that dot the bay’s wide sands, each gazing out to sea from a different point and becoming increasingly submerged as the tide comes in. The figures are all casts of Gormley’s own body, standing upright, hands by his side. You can touch them, photograph them, stand next to them, or simply join them in their peaceful contemplation of the watery horizon.
