Discover Goat Island

Discover the Rocky Shore

Peering into a rock pool

Sorry we no longer offer guided walks on the rocky shore.

However you can visit Goat Island and do your own seashore study.
Check what time low tide is and visit within an hour before or after low tide and preferably when there is no swell or wind from the north. 
Take photographs for identification. There are information boards on your way to the beach and you can learn more at the Marine Discovery Centre which is up the path to the Leigh Laboratory.
