Visit Allonby Beach

Allonby beach in the seaside village is just North of Maryport Beach on the Solway coast.

Walkers can enjoy the Cumbrian Coastal Way that passes through the village, once an important centre for herring fishing until the mid 19th century. The area is great for nature lovers and is part of the Solway ANOB

The shingle and at low tide, a sandy beach, is a popular location for sports including kite and wind surfing and Kite buggying.

The beach is dog friendly and they can enjoy the wide open space to run free.

After a walk along the beach stop in the the Ship Inn on Main St. for a refreshing pint and a hot meal. This historical setting was once visited by Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins who stayed here in mid 1800’s. The Inn is dog friendly also!

Alternatively head to Jacks Surf Bar by the seafront carpark or stop in for a treat at Twentyman’s the famous local ice-cream parlour.
