Bournemouth Beach

Bournemouth has five Blue Flag beaches – Alum Chine, Durley Chine, Fisherman’s Walk, Manor Steps and Southbourne.

Nestled beneath a magnificent cliff line, the bay enjoys its own micro-climate, some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK and stunning views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks.

As an award-winning holiday destination, Bournemouth manages to balance its dual-role as a centre for entertainment and partying and a jolly family-friendly seaside resort. It is also Dorset’s biggest town.
