Sutton-on-Sea Beach

Sutton-on-Sea is a small coastal village with excellent sandy beaches, ideal for families and great for swimming. Much quieter than the neighbouring Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea has resisted over-development, contenting itself with attractive gardens and a children’s paddling pool.

There are regular buses from Skegness railway station.

Superb, clean tidy with wonderful views and safe beaches

Sutton on Sea

Jun 18th 2022

We visit Sutton on Sea many times during the year and have done so for many years. We especially enjoy fish and chips at Waldo’s. The beach is fantastic however recent visits have been spoilt by the number of dogs in the ‘dog free areas’ It seems that the policing of these areas have become very lax!

Brilliant beach!

This is one of the best beaches in the world, I’m not even kidding.. the only negative is the climate, but if you choose a warm day in the summer you’ll feel you’re in paradise, can have fantastic walks on the beach too, from Sutton-on-Sea all the day down to Skegness, nothing quite like this part of the British coast!

We love Sutton On Sea and it’s beach.

My husband always swims, our dog paddles, it’s lovely,  much nicer in sunny weather, but always nice.
Bracing, does you good.
