Hilbre Island Tide Times

Check the tide times before your walk

It might be an obvious thing to say, but many people just head out across the sands without even giving the tide times a second thought.
Read our planning your walk information to get more details on route and walking times.
As a rough guide, find out when the high tide is for the day you’re planning to walk over to Hilbre, it’s normally fine to head out 3 hours after a high tide.
Most walkers choose to head over the sands at low tide, once over on the island you must look to start heading back at least 3 hours before the next high tide.
If in doubt ask the coastguard who is normally situated in the car par by the marine lake.
