Cleethorpes Beach Named Second Best In The Country

Must read

The people of Cleethorpes are celebrating today after Cleethorpes beach was named the second-best UK beach. Trainline ranked Cleethorpes beach the second best in the country, beating the likes of Blackpool, Filey and Skegness after looking at 100 UK beaches.

Trainline looked at a whole range of factors which included Blue Flag Seaside Awards, how easily you can travel to the beach by train, and the facilities that are on offer. This research resulted in Trainline naming Cleethorpes as the second-best beach in the country, missing out on the top spot by Margate beach.

Best UK Beach

Cleethorpes provides people traveling by train the quickest route to the beach, with the station being situated right opposite the beach. Those travelling by train can be on the beach within a few minutes.

The news of Cleethorpes Beach being one of the best in the country is a much-needed boost for business owners. Some business owners have called on North-East Lincolnshire Council to do more to boost tourism. While some residents have said Cleethorpes is dying of a slow death due to the council not having the experience or the interest to bring back the glory days.

One Cleethorpes resident who did not want to be named said: “It is great news that Cleethorpes is being recognised for something good for a change. Cleethorpes has lost so many great attractions which includes winter gardens, and now Pleasure Island. The council don’t have the experience to look after a seaside resort and changes need to be made.”

Another Cleethorpes resident said that North-East Lincolnshire Council should take a visit to Skegness and Scarborough and see how those resorts are thriving.

The Trainline said of Cleethorpes: “In second place, it’s Cleethorpes beach. This vast sandy beach has won both Blue Flag and Seaside Awards. There’s a traditional pier where you can enjoy fish and chips with a view and it’s also the perfect spot for watersports if you fancy having a go at kite surfing or paddleboarding.

“Walking time from the train station to the beach: Just across the road – you couldn’t be closer!”

Local business owners are hoping to see the financial benefits of the news.
