Theddlethorpe Beach is definitely one for nature lovers. A superb unspoilt landscape of salt marshland and sands.

Saltfleetby Theddlethorpe Dunes are designated a National Nature Reserve and there are a range of habitats here; tidal sand and mudflats, salt and freshwater marshes and sand dunes. The marshes behind the beach are one of only a few location in the UK where the natterjack toad can be found.

The beach here is a vast expanse of flat sand extending in every direction. It seems the tide never fully comes in here and it is always a fair walk to the waters edge. With all this beach you don’t have to worry about it getting busy, because it never does, even in the height of summer.

My holy grail

The scale of the nature you are surrounded by around here is fantastic. And that is if you ever tire of this area’s remarkable stretch of beaches.

All of this and peace too. My holy grail.

Absolutely beautiful

Really pretty sandy path down to the beach. Lovely photos through wild grasses over the Sand dunes.
