Mablethorpe: the town-centre stretch of beach
Mablethorpe: the town-centre stretch of beach
Mablethorpe is perhaps not the most well-known of seaside resorts, but is surely one of the best. It has everything that a beach resort should have, and despite not being overrun with visitors like a Skegness or a Bournemouth, it has a lively, busy feel.

The main shopping street that leads down to the point just ahead of us is full of traditional arcades and sweet and rock shops - lots of yummy fudges etc., in quirky stripy beach-hut shaped boxes, that sort of thing. There are plenty of very good ice cream shops, fish and chip shops and seafront cafés.

Plus of course, this wonderful, wide sandy beach which widens considerably at low tide, and features donkey rides and, behind us, TF5085 : Mablethorpe: the Sand Train.

There is no wooden structure projecting out to sea - but Mablethorpe, if pierless, is peerless as a traditional seaside town.
