Information
Skegness is one of the regions busiest beaches. It has everything you would expect from a modern seaside destination.

Weekly chalet hire can be made in advance, and costs from 28 to 56 depending on whether high or low season. Daily hire can only be made on the day and costs from 6 to 16

Deckchairs can be hired for 1.70 per day or 1 per session

There is a large car park right next to the beach and plenty of other parking in the town. As you would expect from such a lively resot, there are loads of places to eat near to the beach and in the town centre.

There are life guards on duty at this beach between 10am and 5pm
The beach has a current Blue Flag Award Lifeguard.

The nearest toilets to the beach are on Towers Esplanade, just 1000m from the beach
The nearest Tourist Information Centre is on Grand Parade

Dogs are not allowed on the central beach from 1st May to 30th September


The northern end of Skegness is quieter all year round so idea for sports from powerkiting to kitesurfing. At low tide the beach can be buggied right up to Mablethorpe and back. It is the favoured beach by the BKSA for Skegness Kite and Xfest. Opening of Xsite Skate Park provided added amenities such as cafe, showers and toilets but there are plenty of other eating establishements in the area, plus a new paintball centre and a local surf and kite shop, Coogee, which has its own online store www.echobay-surfshop.co.uk where if you order by Wednesday you can pick up on arrival.
Parking inclusive with 15 annual Xsite skate park fee, where there is cafe and showers and toilets

WATCH THIS X-COAST!

It's great seeing Skegness on your site - and here's a bit of info to fill you in. The biggest thing on the horizon is a 1.5m extreme sports centre which is being built on the North Parade Car Park, which is due to be completed by Spring 2006. It will include a cafe and there are plans for showers for surfers later. Surf has been pretty good (check www.magicseaweed.com) throughout the year and it's just coming into the time when it's at its best. Facilities in the 'X' area near the centre site at the moment include car park, toilets, two pubs which serve food, a hotel which serves excellent homemade soup, a chinese, and Coogee Surf Shop - handy for wax etc and all your surf/ski gear (kettle's usually on too!). Coogee now has qualified powerkite instructors who are available to book most days. They are currently working with schools, youth clubs and special needs and have their own X-kids Club running on Saturday mornings (see picture). The East Coast Kite Club meets on Sunday afternoons - again on North Beach - flies socially and is promoting the sport for families, so new members are always welcome. Also in Skegness is a cable ski tow, and boat clubs where jet skis are launched and windsurfing takes place. There's lots to fill those empty Skegness boxes... so come and check us out!!!!

Skegness, but don't forget other beaches...

Just North of Skegness is Jackson's Point, then Ingoldmells, Chapel St Leonards, Anderby Creek, then Sutton Car Terrace. All with toilets and seasonal cafe's!
And beaches in between these, some with toilets.
Further North there are more, ending at Cleethorpes, but I've not flown there.
