  • Great new visitor centre and fabulous sweeping views of the coast. Good all weather surface paths too. Two big pots of tea for £3.00 is a great deal.
  • The nature reserve is well worth a walk around. Incredibly peaceful and it's hard to believe you're just a few minutes from the centre of Skegness. The beach overlooks the Wash and is also worth walking to on a fine day. It's like Holkham in Norfolk but with far less people around. The cafe is a great place to finish up. The coffee if really good as is the food (especially the sausage rolls and rustic 'V' cut chips as someone else mentioned!). They serve proper lunches with specials and also a good selection of cakes.
  • Gets busy, even outside the typical tourist session. Lots of bird watching to be had. Visitor centre parking fills up quickly, however there is parking about 1/2 mile further out which connects to the visitor centre via the nature walks. All parking is pay and display.
  • Marvellous area for walking, so peaceful and quite. Enjoy a drink and a scone at the visitors centre. Excellent staff
  • Good walking trails. Numerous ponds attracting dragonflies etc. Good beach/mudflats, although sticky in many places. Cheap parking.
