A small, traditional seaside town in Lincolnshire, Mablethorpe is family-friendly destination complete with great beaches and sandy dunes for miles along the English coastline.
There's plenty to keep you busy at the seaside here, especially in summer. Aside from the glorious beaches with their donkey rides, fish and chips, and bucket and spade fun, there is traditional fun fair situated right on the promenade overlooking the sea. This is where you can ride bumper cars, tuck into cotton candy and get scared in the haunted house and ghost train. Mablethorpe also has traditional arcades and games long associated with this kind of seaside hub.
Those seeking a quiet getaway should explore the sand dunes, heading north towards Theddlethorpe. You can also find surfers here depending on the waves.
Alternatively, make friends with the rescued seals at The Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary & Wildlife Centre, a lovely place dedicated to caring for orphaned and injured animals.
Summer is the liveliest time to visit and has the best weather.
