Southbourne Beach

A quieter, family friendly beach

Between Boscombe and Hengistbury Head you'll find the wonderful Southbourne Beach.

The beach is popular with swimmers and paddlers due to the fact it has no sudden shelves or rip currents. The sandy beach has good access facilities and free LV= Kidzone childrens safety wristbands are available from the beach office.
