The best of quiet Lincolnshire Beaches

If you fancy having a quieter day out, away from the hustle and bustle, then Lincolnshire has plenty to offer. Here are some recommendations for some of the most beautiful hidden beaches on the Lincolnshire coast that you may not know about. Many of Lincolnshire’s beaches are also pet friendly, so you and your pooch can enjoy long walks on the sand all year round! 

Our top five beaches for getting away from it all! 

Stretching along the coast from Sandilands to Chapel St Leonards, and inland to Hogsthorpe, Mumby, Anderby and Huttoft the Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park has miles of stunning sandy beaches, wildlife packed nature reserves, a network of public rights of way and so much more!

At Chapel St. Leonards you will find one of Lincolnshire’s newest yet most popular attractions – the North Sea Observatory. The UK’s only purpose-built Marine Observatory, this dramatic structure is now open all year round and includes the Seascape Cafe, public toilets, art gallery (open during exhibitions or workshops) and exhibits related to the Lincolnshire coast’s natural history. The Seascape Café is fabulous and regularly hosts events such as tapas nights and even sunrise yoga! 

Theddlethorpe Dunes is definitely one for nature lovers with its unspoilt landscape of salt marshland and sands. It is a designated National Nature Reserve and there are a range of habitats here including tidal sand and mudflats, salt and freshwater marshes and sand dunes. 

The beach here is a vast expanse of flat sand extending in every direction. It seems the tide never fully comes in here and it is always a fair walk to the water’s edge! What’s more there is so much space it never seems to get busy! Perfect for getting away from the crowds! 

Cleethorpes has four miles of golden sandy beach right down to the quiet end bordering East Lindsey. The area is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) and local nature reserve. As the gateway to the Humber Estuary, ornithologists regard the area as one of the top 10 estuaries in Europe and a UK hotspot for migrating birds.

Another local gem is Huttoft Beach, also known locally as Moggs Eye. A quiet, rural beach backed with grassy sand dunes. As well as plenty of room for beach games, the beach is used by swimmers, surfers, sea anglers and bird watchers. It is also very popular with walkers. There are no shops here though so make sure you take a picnic!

Wherever you are on the coast of Lincolnshire you are never far from beautiful beaches and a spot of solitude!
