No trip to Skegness is complete for me without a visit to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve. It is so peaceful and quiet after the hubbub of the town with lots of walking trails and natural beauty to enjoy. The new cafe is the perfect place to relax with a coffee and snack with fantastic views from the elevated terrace.

This was our second visit. Totally impressed with the newly built (about a year ago) state of the art visitor centre. Spotlessly clean toilets. Great lunch menu. Sitting in the cafe was like being on a cruise ship. Walking round the reserve can be as long or as short as you want to make it. On a great day you... More

Café here has good homemade food, and the prices are very good. Gets busy at the weekends though. The view is amazing, there were seals on the beach and you can see all the way to Norfolk.

we decided to cycle down to the nature reserve at Gibraltar point a mere three and a half miles from the centre of Skegness. what we didn't take into account was the rather strong wind blowing off the sea on this particular day, needless to say we really enjoyed the refreshments at the new visitors centre.

We took our little ones for a walk around the nature reserve today, it was great seeing the birds and the black sheep on one of the paths, we spotted lots of snails and slugs as it was raining. The kids enjoyed jumping in puddles and then back to the brand new cafe / information centre for coffee and cake!... More

Been for another relaxing walk around the nature reserve and although a portion of the beach is now closed to the public because of the breeding season it's still a lovely quiet place to listen to the numerous skylarks that sing around the marshes
