The Beach Life

Bournemouth Beach

Located directly beneath a magnificent cliff top, Bournemouth’s very own spectacular beach is in perfect sight and in front of our sea front hotels.

This winning seven mile long beach is the perfect place to enjoy your day. Whether it’s stunning views of the Isle of Wight, a good old fashioned family picnic, going for long walks along the traditional seaside piers or enjoying all types of tasty food which are on offer, Bournemouth beach is the ideal beach all year round.

Bournemouth’s spectacular coastline is action packed all year round especially in the warmer months as it hosts fantastic events and festivals. The Bournemouth Air Festival is an annual event that takes place in August/early September. This is the biggest event of its kind in the world, and offers four spectacular days of flying displays, shopping as well as evening entertainment. October is another month of great entertainment as Bournemouth lights up with the Arts by the Sea Festival, offering 10 days of pure entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

Alum Chine

Bournemouth’s Alum Chine is the perfect beach for the whole family, which is home to the Tropical Gardens which include fun and friendly areas with a great pirate themed playground for the children to enjoy. Everyone loves the open sea but for those little kids who are not quite ready to face the big sea, Alum Chine also have a paddling pool with water pumps especially for them.

Facilities include beach huts which are available to hire, toilets with baby changing and disabled facilities, first aid post, children centres as well as great range of pubs and places to eat. There is also a Land train which runs along the promenade from Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe town centre via the Boscombe Gardens or head in the other direction from Bournemouth Pier to Alum Chine Beach.

Hengistbury Head Beach

The Solent Beach which was formally known as Hengistbury Head Beach is another beach perfect for family days out. Hengisbury Head is home to over 500 plant species, 300 types of birds, a superb variety of insects, reptiles and small mammals, as well as being a Stone Age and Iron Age archaeology site.

Also present is a visitor centre in the old thatched barn, which includes displays of archaeology artefacts. There are different themed exhibitions in the centre, as well as talks and events throughout the year. The centre also has a delightful wildlife garden and shop.

Swanage Beach

Swanage Beach is perfect for a family day out mainly because the sandy beach is one of the main attractions of the town. The waters are clean, and the beach has won many European Blue Flag Awards, as well as the Encams Quality Coast Award. Swanage beach has a well-earned reputation for being a good place to soak up the sun and play in the sand and sea. The bay is flanked by magnificent chalk headlands on both sides and views out over the Isle of Wight.

Deck chairs are available for hire, as are pedaloes, kayaks and sun beds. Other facilities such as toilets with disabled facility, several cafes and restaurants, a first aid point and a lost child centre.
