Nice beach, Great fish & chips
Sep 2021 • Couples
We spent a day at Skegness. With it being out of season the beach was empty and our dog loved it.
Amazingly cheap fish & chips (£5.95) which tasted so good. Definitely worth a visit although in season may not be our cup of tea.

The beach at Skegness is great, lovely golden sand loads to do on the beach. The surrounding area is nice with the pier and amusements very close by.

Slightly disappointed
Sep 2021 • Couples
The beach was practically spotless when we visited it on Sunday

However, the weekdays were an entirely different story. There was litter strewn everywhere and an alarming number of dogs running around considering there was a sign on the gate we entered staying that dogs were banned until September 30th!

We could also smell weed quite strongly on 2 occassions.

Fun seaside resort for all ages.
Sep 2021
Excellent seaside resort in Lincolnshire. The high street shops are varied, there are many restaurants, pubs and cafes. The sea front and beach are great for a stroll or to keep youngsters amused as so much to do. There are some good hotels around the town and some do meal-deal stays. The beach is long and spacious and looks relatively empty even with many people sitting, playing, swimming. Lots of car parking ensures easy access to town and beach area.

First beach visit
Sep 2021 • Family
Cane here on holiday as kids lots, took my daughter for her first visit to the beach.

It was sunny which is always a good start. The town centre and beach front have had a bit of attention, repaved etc more shops. But most shops are the same ice cream, and slushies of some sort.

It has a cheap and cheerful Vibe but thats always been how it's been.
Sad to see the jolly fisherman statue not looking his best - corroded and no water.

Beach had a but of litter which there should be no excuse for. Sea also quite mucky and scummy. Which was very off-putting. Long flatish beach with mainly sand. Lifeguards only monitor a small part of the beach.

Loved the donkey rides.

Parking close to seafront but only a little carpark what happens in high season?

Aquarium nice new addition that we may have to visit if l/when we go back

Not worth it

Disappointing. Went to Skegness with high exceptions but left disappointed. Quite boring, most of the activities were highly child centred so probably best for families with small children. Overall, it was a boring day out.

Like entering the Twlight zone

There is an expression, horses for courses, so all I can give is my opinion.
We popped to skegness for the day and walked around, then drove around, in stunned silence. Dump is not the word for this place. Yes there is a large long beach which appears to be clean and have lots of shallow areas for kids to play but OMG. Skegness! I don't consider myself a snob but I'm so fortunate to live near the amazing sea side resorts of whitley Bay and Tynemouth and I just felt that as a seaside resort and British holiday destination people deserve better. The whole place had a cheap nasty run down feel. Everywhere was dirty, shops sold a mix of icecream and slush with shots let's get the parents pissed and it won't look so bad perhaps?
Everything looked like it was probably in need of renewing 20 years ago but disguised under cheap food, thumping music and plastic seating . We wandered through the shopping centre which had zero kerb appeal, no interesting independent craft shops or places of interest, no little coffee bars or friendly cafes just more tat, bingo, slot machines and vodka slush. Packed to the rafters with people so I'm guessing lots of families love this, but not us ! Horrific when you compare it to staithes, whitby or even scarbourough. Even the donkeys looked like they were ashamed to be part of this holiday experience
Came home feeling she'll shocked and like I needed a good wash, and perhaps a couple of redbull and vodka slushes!

Miles of clean sand
Aug 2021 • Family
Beautiful large clean beach with golden sands that stretch for miles, the south side is quiet and hasn’t been commercialised . Skegness itself has both a loud busy side and beautiful secluded spots , Gibraltar point is absolutely stunning.

We were close to this hole on holiday and decided to visit for the day, we wish we hadn't bothered. Most were minging horrible cannabis smoking cretins. We hated the while place and ended up staying less then an hour.
