Holiday Travel Guide
Bournemouth Beach

Stroll along miles of England’s southern coast and stop at the fun parks and activity centers along the way.

Bournemouth Beach is one of England’s most popular and attractive sandy areas. For decades, locals and travelers have been relaxing under umbrellas against the roar of the English Channel’s waves. Discover the varying parts of the beach during your vacation, from the more active central bays to the spacious havens a little farther out from the city.

The inner beaches are active with cafés, bars and boutiques facing the shore. Enjoy this hub of life by people-watching from one of the restaurants overlooking the sea. Amble along Bournemouth Pier to find the Rock Reef activity center. Zipline from a tower on the pier down to the shore. Climb walls with fun themes and take the kids to the obstacle course and the play area.

Bring your family to the Durley Chine part of the beach on the way to the nearby city of Poole in the west. The beach's calm water and soft sand are the perfect environment for kids. Help them build castles in the sand and trawl the beach for lost treasures, such as shells and rocks. Rent your own colorfully painted beach hut for privacy and space on this picturesque part of the coast.

Farther west, visit Alum Chine and Argyll Gardens. Enjoy cool shade in the valley and tour the tropical gardens in this exotic park with magnificent sculpted plants. Take the kids to the Treasure Island play area.

Go to the Coastal Activity Park at Boscombe Beach to use its sports courts and centers for water sports. Try bodyboarding or sea kayaking in this scenic part of England.

Look to the east to try to spot the edge of the Isle of Wight or to the south for the distant hints of France at the horizon.

Bournemouth Beach stretches across 7 miles (11 kilometers) of sandy terrain on England’s southern coast. Enjoy many attractions a short walk from the beach, such as Bournemouth Pier, Bournemouth Lower Gardens and the Oceanarium. Travel from one end to the other by bus or on foot via scenic seafront paths.
