The sands and the dunes at Mablethorpe are the best on this coastline. My family and I have been coming here for near on 4 generations off and on, we still feel that Mablethorpe is the safest and one of the cleaner beaches around. We all have fond and happy memories of large family day outings and weekly hols, on caravan sites, and still visiting. The town has as many others sadly become quieter in the entertainment way, yet you can still find a good chippy when you need one, or a good cafe/restaraunt. They are not too expensive as in the south are.

I've always visited the beaches in cornwall, clear water, golden sands etc. Last week I was invited to Mablethorpe beach by my friend. I had my doubts, but on arriving, I was pleasantly surprised! The sand was so soft and the dunes looked great. I had a relaxing time and would go again. Not sure about Mablethorpe itself, not quite my cup of tea. However if you access the beach before going into Mablethorpe, you will find a little bit of hiden Cornwall! Enjoy!

I am an ex pat now living near Manchester (no beaches), and when ever I get the chance I come back to Lincolnshire and visit the beaches and Mablethorpe is one of my favourites. This particular place was always frequented by the children of Grimsby and Cleethorpes, (with its own superb beach and
attractions) whose parents where members of local clubs and this location along with Skegness was always one of the choices by the organisers.

A trip back now and then always produces fond memories.

Mablethorpe is clean quite and peaceful, the only down side is not a lot to do, could do with a swimming pool and a few more shops, I have been going there since i was small so have always loved it. For kids is fantastic mile upon mile of golden beaches, lovely walks, would recommend for anyone who likes it quite.

It is the best beach and sky combination in Britain, unfortunately, it is spoilt by coal dust which is always evident on the sand. The council needs to clean the beach regularly as is the case at Cleethorpes. This beach is a very valuable asset and more effort needs to be made to maintain it. I love Mablethorpe for all it’s faults and have done for over 50 years.

Mablethorpe is a wonderful place with a spectacular soft sandy beach. The town is a very friendly town and has a low crime rate compared to other uk towns.
A perfect place for all ages.

Beach itself is perfect and well worth the visit. Facilities in the town leave a lot to be desired.

Is this really a small town on the Lincolnshire Coast? If I hadn't driven to this beauty spot myself I could have mistaken it for a deserted location on the continent. This beach is fantastic, the sand is golden and very clean and I've never seen so much sky. Access is a bit tricky along some rickety wooden steps, but they're very safe and look pretty. If you need to get a pushchair or a wheelchair down that could be a little more difficult. Further along towards the town of Mablethope there's more in the way if refreshments and much better access, but it is busier. This beach is perfect for a picnic, so pack the hamper and enjoy a peaceful afternoon in the sunshine... oh, and say hello to Prince the donkey for me!

Hi Katie,
It's nice to hear somebody else has discovered the beauty of mablethorpe. I've been visiting the town for 5 years now and plan to move there next summer. I'd recommend it to everyone and would choose Mablethorpe over anywhere else.
