High Tide on Hilbre Island Sunset Walk
My happy place, the beautiful Hilbre Island.
This is my favourite walk on the Wirral and with an extra special twist. For this walk we race the incoming tide to reach Middle Eye as Hilbre is cut off by the tide, then just after high water we cross to Hilbre to watch the sunset from the Lifeboat Station.
We start at West Kirby Sailing School and walk out across the sands to Little Eye, we then turn along the rocky bank heading for Middle Eye to arrive on the island just before the High Tide. Here we stay for an hour or so as the water begins to recede we’ll cross to Hilbre.
We’ll then watch the sunset before heading back across the sands to West Kirby.
Overall a 3/4 hour trip taking in one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on the Wirral.
Due to the popularity and specific tidal conditions that mean this walk is not able to run very often I’ve decided to charge £20pp for this walk. Please complete the booking form below to take part.
Total length of the walk is approximately 4.5miles.
*This walk is only available at specific tidal conditions when the tide cuts the island off for approx 20-30 minutes. You should not walk to Hilbre at high tide unless you are with an experienced guide who knows the tides and can plan a route safely.
