The visitor centre and cafe are closed due to flood damage but there is a temporary Portacabin and mobile catering van offering a limited range of hot & cold drinks & snacks. Also temporary toilets. However the purpose of visiting Gibraltar Point is the scenery. The weather was poor so the view out to sea and across the Wash was non existent. Also there are are not many birds about at this time of year. But the peace and solitude are wonderful in a natural environment that hasn't been sanitised into prettiness. There are not many places in England where you can hear nothing but the sea (and in our case, the rain). Don't expect manicured gardens, crowds or lots to look at, do expect the sound of the sea and birds and not a lot else (a good thing in my opinion). Parking charges are very reasonable at £1 for 2 hours or £3 all day.

Lovely weather helped our recent trip, glorious sunshine and a lovely walk. Easy to follow routes. Not many birds about that day, but the views and light were beautiful. The catering facilities advertised were pretty dire to be honest (bacon sandwich from hell), but the staff at the cabin were very nice and helpful. Wish them luck with the new centre.

We have been to Gibraltar Point on many occasions when visiting Skegness and every time it blows me away.
What a wonderful peaceful place it is especially this time of the year.
We walk via the marshes and we did not see any one tell about an hour had gone by.
Don`t take your car or you will miss out.
The scenery and the wildlife is wonderful.
Make sure you take your binoculars.
It is free to walk you only pay if you park your car.

What a gem of a place! My wife and I were visiting our daughter in Lincoln and being a nice day, decided to explore Gibraltar Point. What a gem ! The long walk along the seashore and hinterland was so relaxing and satisfying. Clear your lungs here and scream out life's frustrations here. All good for the soul. Reminded me of another wonderful area not too far away, the North Norfolk Coast.

Quiet solitude if you go early enough.
However more should be done to ensure ALL dog walkers keep their dogs on a lead at all times and then they might clean up after them otherwise I can see dogs being banned which would not be fair on responsible owners like me.
