This image of a sunset behind the Eric Morecambe statue which is on the central promenade is one of my favourites.
Morecambe is famous for its sunsets and there are more on the Sunsets and Sunrises page.
Millions of pounds have been spent on protecting the promenades 3 bays from sea erosion. Consequently the sea front has taken on an entirely new look, for the better in my view but it has its downsides. Large areas. particularly at the west end, are beginning to be covered with grass and could finish up as being very muddy. Other bays have beautiful sandy beaches ideal for a kiddies day out.
