Bournemouth Beach

Bournemouth Beach Review

With miles of beaches tucked beneath its cliffs, Bournemouth is said to enjoy some of the country's warmest sea temperatures. Taking the zigzag paths through the leafy public gardens, you can descend to the seafront, where Bournemouth Pier juts into the channel from the pristine sandy beach. If you're not tempted to swim, you can stroll the nearby promenade. Europe's first artificial surf reef was constructed here to attract surf fans as well as create an area of calm water that's perfect for children—surfers, however, have reported that the reef is more suitable for bodyboarding than standing up. Windsurfing, sailing, and other water sports are also big here.
