AOL Travel-Voted Anderby Creek 1 of Britain's top 10 hidden beaches
Tucked away between the small seaside towns of Chapel St. Leonard's and Sutton-on-Sea, Anderby Creek beach is unspoilt, quiet and beautiful. The gorgeous stretch of soft sand is backed by dunes and is perfect for sandcastle building, bathing or just strolling.
From the Cabin take a short stroll down Sea Rd to the beach. Once you see the long stretch of sand at Anderby Creek you will be hooked - not by one of the fishermen who can be seen lined up along the shore, but by the stunning views straight ahead and up and down the coast.
The serene beauty of the offshore wind turbines leads you out to sea & the quirky houses on the dunes draw you back in. The photogenic red post out to sea colourfully breaks up the panoramic views and the sand dunes with their flowing grasses comfort and shelter you. This is a beach that constantly changes and will make you feel different every time you go back. We have been to many other beaches but the big sky and panoramic views have always drawn us back to Anderby and we hope that you will feel the same way.
Turn right towards Gibralter Point and you will walk past the round and round house, well worth a detour to focus your view on native birdlife and further along the sculptural panoramic viewing station will catch your eye. You will be envious of the views that the secluded private garden rooms have, perched above the dunes and then further on you will be greeted by the colourful beach huts at Chapel St Leonards, a perfect spot for a picnic, while taking in the distant view of the dizzying rides of Skegness.
Turn left for an invigorating and beautiful walk to Mablethorpe with more beach huts and wide sandy beach which you could at times have all to yourself. On your way back take a detour right up through the dunes and head down Sandy Lane for another pleasant walk back home.
There is a Cloud Bar at the entrance to the beach which is the UK's first permanent cloud watching outpost. With cloud shaped seats and mirrors to reflect the changing weather.
The beach is fully open to dogs Sept-March and during March-Sept they are allowed within specific areas. As well as dogs enjoying the beach you may also see flocks of seagulls, galloping horses and seals who have come out of the sea to sunbathe.
Facilities - There is a beach cafe providing meals, drinks and ice creams, car park with public toilets and a shop on your way to Sea Rd for any provisions.
For the beach - In the mini cabin there is a windbreak for your use, beach mat and foldaway picnic chairs (4 adult, 3 child). There is a blanket in the cabin to take with you plus a flask and collapsible cool bag.
There are three equally beautiful Blue Flag beaches nearby at Mablethorpe, Sutton-on-Sea and Skegness - please see next page for these and other places to explore.
