Our readers venture across the water to discover a hidden gem off the Wirral coast

Hilbre Island is part of an archipelago of three islands just off the Wirral coast at the mouth of the Dee Estuary.

Hilbre Island is a designated Local Nature Reserve and you may see a variety of wildlife including Atlantic Grey Seals, Harbour Porpoise and a wide range of bird-life and the views of the Mersey Peninsula are fantatstic.

The island can be reached on foot from West Kirby at low tide, although there are regular boat trips arranged that take around two hours. Please check tide times (or boat times) beforehand to avoided getting stranded or putting yourself in danger.
