The Lincolnshire Coast
Places to Visit
Why look anywhere else for a traditional seaside holiday?
Skegness, Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes and Sutton on Sea offer clean and safe sandy beaches.... perfect for cherished holiday memories.
Miles of golden sand, beachside amusements, indoor attractions and good old-fashioned fun make Lincolnshire a firm family favourite, come rain or shine.
Stroll the boardwalk at Skegness Pier, one of the east coast's largest family entertainment centres. Feed the seals and have a great day out at Natureland Seal Sanctuary. Brave a white-knuckle ride at Pleasure Island, Cleethorpes.
Grab a seat on the Mablethorpe Sand Train or cool off in the Maple Leaf shaped children's paddling pool at Sutton on Sea. And no trip to the seaside would be complete without a donkey ride on the beach.
Join in the annual Skegness SO Festival held in June or enjoy Europe's largest linear coastal arts festival, based around uniquely designed ‘Bathing Beauties' beach huts at Mablethorpe during September.
But this is also a coast for nature lovers and birdwatchers.
Lincolnshire's Natural Coast attracts around a million migrating birds each year and the curved ‘Round & Round House', at Anderby, offers a perfect vantage point.
At unspoilt Anderby Creek beach, grab a new perspective on nature - at the UK's first purpose-built cloud viewing platform nestling amidst sand dunes.
Step out into a different world at Huttoft - where you can park your car almost at the water's edge - or at the Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe National Nature Reserve boasting striking summer displays of sea lavender.
Near Skegness lies Gibraltar Point, a 1,300-acre wildlife reserve hosting many breeding colonies of birds, while to the north Donna Nook Reserve has one of the UK's most accessible breeding colonies of grey seals during November and December.
