Crews from the Coastguard and ambulance service also attended the scene and a cordon was put in place while an investigation began, the force said.
“Enquiries are in their very early stages and we are currently treating the man’s death as unexplained,” a spokesman said.
The discovery comes less than a month after a severed human foot - believed to be that of a woman - was found on a footpath in New Waltham, just a few miles from Cleethorpes.
