Attraction Information

  • Beaches icon Beaches

Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Mablethorpe Beach is appreciated locally as a terrific specimen offering really soft golden sands ideal for castling, backed by grassy dunes equally ideal for exploring or hide and seek.

There are gently sloping and generally calm waters good for swimming too with summer lifeguard patrols and its own lifeboat station.Plus it's a regular Seaside Award winner so you know the area will be pleasingly clean.

Depending on how you view it, it's generally worth checking either way on the Mablethorpe Motorcycle Sand Racing Club website to see if there's an event coming up. Those who love a bit of rev will enjoy being able to watch part of their event, but of course those who aren't so keen will probably want to avoid it at such times, so be sure to check ahead.

Immediate vicinity amenities seem to include Crazy Golf on the North Promenade, where you can also find a fair few rides at the Dunes Central Amusement Park. So all in all whether you want peaceful day of castling and paddling or a full throttle let's do everything twice kind of day, there's plenty to choose from here and enough space between the features that you won't feel crowded if you're just after the beach itself.
