The new marketing tools will be officially launched on Wednesday during a media event at the North Sea Observatory in Chapel St Leonards.

The website features details on the best nature spots to visit, local children’s activites, walking and cycling routes, sites ideal for bird-watching - and even picnic recipes to make the most of the picturesque beaches.

Coun Colin Davie, executive member for economy and place at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Lincolnshire is well-known for its seaside towns, which have been popular holiday destinations for generations, but we want to remind people that our wonderful coast has much more to offer.

“There are great opportunities for walking, cycling, and bird watching all year round, and a wealth of wildlife and plant-life to explore.
