Beaches in Lincolnshire
The county of Lincolnshire is steeped in history with its monasteries and abbeys, an ancient county town and agricultural tradition. The county also boasts an excellent coastline. In fact, the golden beaches in Lincolnshire are some of Britain’s best kept secrets.
From household towns to the secluded dunes that few people know about, we're here to guide you through the beaches in Lincolnshire. Our Lincolnshire caravan parks occupy some of the best places in the county visiting the seaside, so we've tailored all our features below to within a short drive or walk from our Thorpe Park Holiday Centre or Golden Sands Holiday Park. Read on and let us reveal the beaches in Lincolnshire that are the best places to head to on a Haven holiday.
Beach walks: coastal gems
Stroll out the gates of our Golden Sands holiday park and enjoy a number of different walking options. Sat opposite the park is Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary, a controlled environment along the sands of Golden Sands beach that looks after sick and injured seals. Check this out before heading onto the sand itself and strolling just over a mile down to Mablethorpe’s promenade. It’s a great way to sample the sea air and head for an attraction or two on one of the best beaches in Lincolnshire with a whole host of attractions.
From Thorpe Park, you can head down to Fitties Beach opposite the park and start a walking adventure up to the one of the best beaches in Lincolnshire: Cleethorpes. The two-mile journey takes around 45 minutes, and you can hop on the beach’s land train to rest your legs when you reach your destination.
For a foray further afield, head to Skegness or traverse Moggs Eye Beach in Huttoft, praised by The Guardian and one of the best beaches in the UK for a stroll with the family.
Beach history: Lincolnshire legends
While it may not be strictly along the beaches in Lincolnshire, a trip to Lincoln to see its 11th-century cathedral is the premier place to head to for a slice of history in the county. Just an hour’s drive from Golden Sands or Thorpe Park, Lincoln is the county town and is full of other brilliant bits that undoubtedly go under the radar. It really is the definition of a hidden gem. Check out the ancient streets of the town and stop for a bite to eat at one of its many brilliant establishments.
For a more quintessential coastal experience, check out Grimsby’s Viking past at the Time Trap Museum or delve into its history of fishing at the Fishing Heritage Centre, and of course, try a spot of the town’s incredible seafood too. You won’t be stuck for remnants of the past on the glorious stretch of Lincolnshire coastline our parks sit on.
Beach attractions: magnificently mouthwatering
For a classic day out at the seaside, it doesn’t get much better than the options the beaches in Lincolnshire serve up. Household names like Cleethorpes and Grimsby are just a stone’s throw away from our Thorpe Park holiday site, so you have easy access to a brilliant family day out when you stay with us. Sand, sea and the all-important pier are the centrepiece in Cleethorpes, with Papas Restaurant a must try to top off a memory making time with the loved ones.
Mablethorpe is a slightly more chilled proposition for those who choose Golden Sands holiday park for their Haven break. There’s still loads to do though, with amusements galore and a stunning seafront that’s of course made complete by the magnificent Mablethorpe Beach.
