Hengistbury Head Outdoor Centre

The Broadway Southbourne Bournemouth BH6 4EN 01202 425 173

We say

Beautifully positioned on the edge of Christchurch harbour – close to the landtrain start point to Hengistbury Head – the Outdoor Centre is the place to experience those water sports you always said you would try. The Centre offers courses in sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, windsurfing and powerboating. The harbour here is deceptively shallow so it's ideal for beginners – but also large and varied enough for the more experienced. The Centre can also arrange trips for more the more advanced to some of the more challenging sites along the coast. Check the website for details of family sessions, activity days and open days, too.
