Bournemouth Beach

Bournemouth Beach

We say

This seven-mile long stretch of gently shelving sand that stretches from the glitzy Sandbanks Peninsula in the west to the less-developed Hengistbury Head in the east is one of the south coast’s best beaches: period. Certain sections of the beach can be reached by chines – wooded valleys that lead down to the beach: Alum Chine is a deep, dramatic gulley, while Boscombe Chine is more landscaped with gardens and play areas. The beach is clean and safe for children, with lifeguards on duty in summer and clearly marked sections for dog walking. If you get bored of swimming or making sandcastles, cycle the full length of the beach (except July and August) along the promenade.

Another Jewel in the British Seaside Crown ★★★★★

Gorgeous Beach for adult and kids alike.....gets sooo busy on a sunny day but try it out of season due to the climate being so mild and you're in for a treat!
