A trip to our beautiful Bournemouth Beaches can mean different things to different people.
If you are looking for a classic seaside day out head for Bournemouth’s main beach right next to The town centre. Here you will find The Winter Gardens to wander through on the way down to the sands, ice creams shops, buckets and spades and fish and chips as well as an award winning 7 mile white sand beach to die for!
If you prefer a bit of people watching and a glamorous backdrop to your sunbathing head for Sandbanks beach with its millionaire’s houses and stunning views of the yachts, speedboats, motor cruisers and jet skiers. Grab an ice cream from the news agents on the way down to the chainlink ferry across to Studland Bay or enjoy a lovely lunch on the terrace of The Haven Hotel overlooking the Entrance to Poole Harbour.
If you are feeling energetic try your hand at windsurfing, kite boarding, paddle boarding or sailing at Poole Harbour. There are lots of hire companies along the bay if you don’t have your own equipment or simply watch the experts whilst enjoying the fantastic views of Brownsea Island and the Sandbanks Peninsula.
Finally, if you have any energy, take a trip to the lovely harbour side town of Christchurch with its beautiful walk along the river leading to the bay at Muddeford for a bit of crabbing or a short boat trip over to see the multi coloured beach huts on the peninsula. Finish the day with dinner at the Boat House restaurant or the glamorous Captain’s Place for fabulous cocktails!
