Mablethorpe is a resort on the Lincolshire coast which attracts many thousands of holiday makers during our short Summer months. It has undergone many changes since it first became a holiday destination. One of it's major attractions, is it's miles of golden sands, backed by high sand dunes.
At one end there are the Amusements; all the traditional rides with modern ones being added yearly. Donkey rides can be found here too for the children, at a very modest price of around ?1.00 or about 1 Euro 40 'ish'.
In the town there are arcades for the little kids.....and the BIG kids at heart....! Or if you fancy a game of Bingo, nearly every arcade has one. if you like Fish 'N Chips, fish shops are everywhere!
Along this coastline seafog can appear almost from nowhere, even on hot summer days. what can seem just like a bit of mist, can quickly turn into a 'Peasouper' in no time which is very disorientating. So Beach Patrols are always on alert and placed at strategic points keeping a sharp eye on the weather
and holiday makers
UPDATE: 30 Sept 2011
I travelled there with my partner, from Doncaster (a 150 mile round trip) during this very hot end to the month. I wish we had gone to Bridlington instead. The beach is horrible below high tide. There is huge amounts of thick sludgey clay all along the low to high tide mark, that is more than ankle deep in this gluey muck. We walked...HAD TO WALK....about 2 miles south in the water (which was covering this stuff too, in large patches) just so we could keep reasonably clean. We found another outfall pipe that was literally gushing water out. The water quality was typically bad that was brown and scummy. This used to be my favourite resort for many years. I am horrified and disgusted by how this resort has been left to deteriorate.
