Sutton-on-Sea, Lincolnshire

Three beaches in Lincolnshire have been recognised for their excellent quality, and have retained their Blue Flags for the second year running. 

We’re delighted to announce that Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea and Skegness central beaches have all been awarded for 2023, making them the top three best beaches in Lincolnshire. Awarded for being clean, safe, meeting the highest environmental standards, and for international bathing water quality standards, a visit to these three beaches in Lincolnshire will only help you have the best experience.

Allison Ogden-Newton OBE, chief executive of KBT, said: “Visitors to a beach flying a Blue Flag or Seaside Award can be assured the beach will be clean, safe and meet the highest environmental standards, as well as international bathing water quality standards.

“The Blue Flag is the world’s most recognised award for beaches and marinas and, in order to qualify, each applicant must meet and maintain a series of stringent environmental, educational, safety and accessibility criteria. We’d therefore like to recognise and applaud all those who have worked so hard to protect and improve some of best-loved and most popular beaches.

“The collective efforts of beach managers, volunteers, residents and businesses all contribute to the success of these sites in achieving the incredibly high standards demanded.”
