Planning a trip to Lincolnshire and looking for the nearest beaches. This North Sea coast of Lincolnshire runs for more than 80 km from the estuary of the Humber to the marshlands of the Wash. You will not find cliffs as the coast is very flat but you have plenty of remote spots alongside the traditional seaside towns like Skegness, one of Britain’s first seaside resorts.
- Huttoft Beach is an unspoilt, sandy beach and dune system that sits just to the north of Moggs Eye beach. The beach is also known as Huttoft Car Terrace beach due to the ability to park on the beach itself, although you need to be careful as the sand can be deep due to being blown around. Facilities at the beach include car parking alongside the beach itself and toilets.
