Coastal Pass scheme aims to attract visitors to Lincolnshire coast

A new project has been launched to try to attract more visitors to the Lincolnshire coast. The Coastal Pass scheme will allow holidaymakers to create their own activities and find out more about places they can visit.

This digitally innovative project presents an excellent opportunity for East Lincolnshire to target and encourage Dutch visitors to visit and explore our part of the coast and we are delighted to be a partner in this project.

East Lincolnshire has a diverse range of great products and experiences that will appeal to the Dutch market and we are ready to welcome them.
