National Nature Reserve

Natural England has recognised the Greater Lincolnshire coast as a National Nature Reserve.

The Lincolnshire Coronation Coast National Nature Reserve covers almost 30 kilometres of the Greater Lincolnshire coast containing a variety of sand dunes, salt marshes, mudflats and freshwater marshes which are of international importance. 

Keeping the beach clean

We are lucky to have a beach right on our doorstep, so let’s work together to keep it clean. The beach is raked and litter-picked daily from March to October, and then on Friday to Monday over the winter months.

As well as more than 60 normal litter bins, Cleethorpes also has 3 specially designed recycling bins to put plastic in.

Coastal defence

North East Lincolnshire Council is a Maritime Authority and has delegated powers under the Coast Protection Act 1949. This means we can provide and maintain coastal defences, to prevent the erosion of the shoreline.

To report a problem with drainage or any of our coastal defences, complete the online form:

Pleasure crafts

We encourage the use of small pleasure crafts off the resort, however, we are keen to ensure that vessels are used safely and user’s respect the rules, for their own safety and that of the user’s around them.
