Things to do at Chapel St Leonards Beach

Published on

Chapel St Leonards Beach which is home to the North Sea Observatory is a great place to visit. If you have come on holiday with the kids, then you want to keep them entertained. So, we have put together a great article on things to do at Chapel St Leonards Beach.

The beach at Chapel St Leonards, near Skegness in Lincolnshire is in my opinion one of the best beaches in Lincolnshire. The beach is less touristy than the main beach in Skegness, and to be honest a lot of Skegness holidaymakers don’t know about it. However, the Chapel St Leonards Beach which is a short journey from the Skegness main beach is worth a visit.

If you like walking, then you are in for a treat. The beach at Chapel St Leonards stretches for miles in both directions. The beach forms part of the English coastal path which stretches from the North Sea Observatory and takes you right into Skegness.

To the south of the beach, it takes you to the resort town of Skegness, the walk is about 6 miles. To the north of Chapel St Leonards Beach entrance is Chapel Point. It was built during the Second World War as a coastal defence line. Past Chapel Point there is a lovely beach known as Anderby Creek and Sandilands. It is a lovely walk.

Those living in Skegness love the Chapel St Leonards beach because it is a lot quieter than the other beaches and unspoilt. The tide rarely comes inland which means it is a great place to sunbath. It is a great safe place for children of all ages to play.
