Lincolnshire Webcam - Coastcam

"Oh we do like to be beside the seaside..."

That's how the song goes, isn't it! Well now you can visit the seaside whenever you want from the comfort of your computer screen.

A picture from the seaside

We've set up a webcam in partnership with the RNLI at Skegness. It's situated in their observation tower looking across the beach and coast of Skegness.

Safety Information for a visit to the coast

Red & Yellow Flag
This means lifeguards are on patrol. Two red and yellow flags at the waters edge designate a bathing / body boarding zone supervised by lifeguards.
Black & White Flag
The quartered black and white flag indicates the area zoned for surf craft. It is not safe for swimmers and bathers.
Red Flag
The red flag means it is dangerous to bathe or swim and you should not go into the water.
In addition the RNLI recommends that children and adults learn FLAGS:
Find the red and yellow flags and swim between them
Look at the safety signs
Ask a Lifeguard for advice
Get a friend to swim with you
Stick your hand up and shout for help if in difficulty
