Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve runs for about three miles from Skegness to The Wash and covers around 430 hectares of sea shore, an extensive complex of sand dunes, marshes and freshwater habitats.

It is a totally unspoilt stretch of coastline important for its international scientific interest and managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust

The public is welcome here and there are pathways that lead you easily through the different habitats and keep the intrusion on nature to a minimum. An observation platform for the public to view the Mere and the lagoon is at Mill Hill and gives you a wide panoramic view of the area.

Designated as a site of international wetland importance, the reserve is an area of geomorphological importance. There’s a great visitors centre where you can explore the habitats through the multi media and interactive displays.

We’ve heard The Point Cafe is good too with scrumptious food being served while you kick back and soak up Mother Nature at her best.

The reserve staff offer guided walks, children’s activities, day and residential training courses.  The reserve is open from 10am to 4pm daily but may close early in bad weather conditions.

Admission is free but car parking charges apply and they ask that groups book in advance.
