The seven golden miles of beaches consistently win the hearts of beach lovers, as well as awards for safety, quality and cleanliness. The bay offers extreme views on a clear day and if you’re into water sports or want to enjoy family entertainment on the Pier, or you just want to read a book and relax on the beach, there’s a beach in Bournemouth that’s waiting for you. The Cliff lifts to the beaches operate everyday and you can hire a beach hut, beach chairs, sun beds and parasols once you arrive.

There are several dog friendly beaches which include: Middle Chine, Fisherman’s Walk, Alum Chine and Hengistbury Head. Known as the St Tropez of England, Bournemouth beaches not only appeal to Brits, but people from around the world come to experience the crystal clear water and the golden colored sand. The town has spent time and money dredging Poole Harbor, so the beach could be widened to accommodate beach lovers and sun worshippers.
