Primarily this is to see dune succession and the related flora which occurs as the dunes change from the beach to the land. Also, to see the unique Great Slack and how it is formed, an area stretching behind the dunes which is freshwater in winter and dry in summer. This meeting is ideal for beginners using the Pocket Wildflower Guides to Wildflowers and to Grasses and to improvers as there is a rich dune and saltmarsh flora. There are also some very rare and scarce species to be seen for some more detailed identification. There is no difficult terrain, just sand dunes and grassland. Entry to carpark is £2. There are good toilets, picnic benches and a snack shack.
