Southport beach

With exceptional views of the coast, Southport beach is a great sunny spot. It’s also just a short walk away from the buzzing town centre, so you’re not far from the bars, clubs, hotels and top attractions. Some of the most popular bars and clubs include Taps and Bottles, and Zodiac Nightclub. Southport also proudly boasts a huge number of independent pubs and restaurants, so you’ll have plenty of options to choose from.

Nearby Churchtown and Birkdale also have lots of bars and pubs where you can enjoy a few beers after a day on the course.
