The Lincolnshire coast runs around The Wash in the South East of the county, up the east side along the Humber Estuary to the famous Humber Bridge. It offers two very different seaside experiences - The Fun and the Rural Coast.
The Fun Coast, which stretches from Skegness to Mablethorpe and is home to some of the finest seaside resorts in the UK. Skegness is possibly one of the UK's top seaside destinations and is well known for the Jolly Fisherman, the character with his outstretched arms. In fact some say Skegness rose to fame on the back of posters of this happy character.
For a mixture of both traditional and modern, Chapel St. Leonards offers the visitor the perfect combination. A little further up is Ingoldmells, home to the famous Fantasy Island Millennium Roller Coaster and Butlins. Mablethorpe is very much a fun family resort while Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe have a unique quality and charm all of their own.
Both between and beyond these popular beach and family resorts, is what has been termed the Rural Coast, famed for its total tranquility and varying wildlife. Places of particular interest for the visitor are Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby, Crook Bank and Moggs Eye each offering a sanctuary for those seeking a more relaxing and ‘back-to nature’ atmosphere.
Wild stretches of unspoiled sand present some of Lincolnshire's greatest natural assets, offering birdwatchers, nature lovers, conservationists and even romantics, the perfect opportunity for pursuing some quality time away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
All the coastal resorts in Lincolnshire can offer something for everyone. On the one hand, there’s sun, tranquility and peace, while on the other, fun, excitement and laughs are on offer, all wrapped up in a visitor package that is clean and gloriously fresh and open. The resorts are well-known for the warmth of their welcome to visitors, outstanding value, great service and excellent choice of accommodation, whether it’s a hotel or self-catering visit.
