Both are lively, traditional seaside holiday towns and have Blue Flag beaches. There is plenty to do for both young and old; Mablethorpe offers all the fun of the fair as well as an international circus in the summer, while Skegness has plenty of arcades, shops as well as the popular Natureland Seal Sanctuary and Skegnes AquariumSutton-on-Sea is a quieter seaside resort which has Victorian architecture and a fantastic Blue Flag beach.

Skegness Beach

Endless stretches of sand lapped by a shallow tide, Lincolnshire’s beaches are the ideal playground for families and couples alike. Take a picnic, set up camp for the day and enjoy the vast expanses of beautiful sea and sand. Go beach combing, paddling or even have a swim. Explore the dunes, build sand castles or take the dog for a long walk as all our main seaside resorts have sog friendly beaches. Head to Skegness or Cleethorpes for the very best in family beaches and entertainment,  When in Cleethorpes you must vist Seaview Street with its many unique independant shops from furniture to fashion with bistos and tea rooms, whilst there, you must also go and see the fantastic renovated traditional Victorian Pier.  You can also book a beach hut for the day in Mablethorpe or Sutton on Sea via East Lindsey District Council.


Stretching more than thirty miles from Cleethorpes to Gibraltar Point at The Wash, Lincolnshire’s golden beaches are rated among some of the best sandy beaches in the world. Lincolnshire Coastal Country Park is located between Sandilands and Chapel Point. It has several more peaceful and unspoilt beaches. These include Huttoft Car Terrace (where you can park up to the beach), Moggs Eye, and Anderby Creek, an old family favourite at Chapel Point. All have their own car parks including disabled spaces and public toilets. There are cafes at Chapel Point and Anderby Creek too.
