The county of Lincolnshire has a great deal to offer visitors. From rolling rural vistas to charming castles and country houses, there's something to keep everyone amused from boisterous kids to romancing couples. One of the county's biggest draws, though, is the seaside.
The famous seaside resort of Skegness welcomes large number of tourists each year, and with good reason. Offering safe swimming, ample facilities and a plethora of exquisite hotels nearby, it's easy to see the attraction of Skegness Beach and everything this traditional seaside town has to offer.
Skegness's Award Winning Beach
The beach at Skegness is so clean it's won numerous awards. The Blue Flag beach boasts a vast stretch of clean sand and excellent water quality. Free from hazards, the gently shelving beach is an ideal spot for swimming, suitable for all ages. For that added peace of mind, the beach is also patrolled by professional lifeguards.
Packed with Facilities
In addition to the stunning natural coastline, Skegness Beach is popular as a result of its stellar facilities. In addition to a café, restaurant and public toilets, there's also superior disabled access and a first-aid point.
For kids, there's a Fairy Dell paddling pool and, of course, the famous donkey rides to take your little ones up and down the glorious sandy seafront. Dogs are welcomed on the beach outside of the summer months, and the ample car parking and nearby train station mean access couldn't be easier. With such great transport links, day trips to Skegness are easy from all hotels in Lincolnshire.
