Skegness Beach

Skegness beach is probably Lincolnshire’s most renown beach, it’s called Skeg, Skeggy and Skegvegas by those who have been there and is one of the county’s most visited seaside resorts and in particular for those in the East Midlands. It’s a perfect, wide, sandy beach with promenade gardens and boating lakes.

All visitor reviews speak of the cleanliness of this beach, the facilities and the fun they’ve had there all year round.

There are great restaurants and cafes and a lot of attractions allowing a really good day out whatever the weather!It’s a great sandy beach for surfing, bodyboarding, swimming, boating and canoeing as the water is shallow with a gradual gradient and the surf is not too wild making it a perfect spot for those with little children as well.

Facilities at the beach include large car park and street parking, seasonal lifeguards, toilets incl. disabled, deckchair/chalet/beach hut hire, restaurants/cafes, first aid facilities, pier, promenade, amusements and slipway.
