This feature-laden beach is a firm favourite with families. It provides good bathing areas and is easily accessed via means of a cliff lift, cliff paths or level promenade from nearby Boscombe. The beach is sandy with some shingle and has no sudden shelves or rip currents. A good range of facilities is provided and the attractive Southbourne Grove shopping centre is situated within easy walking distance from the cliff top through Fisherman's Walk ornamental gardens. The presence of lifeguards and the zoning of watercraft away from swimmers increases safety when bathing. Free LV= Kidzone children’s safety wristbands are available from the beach office.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.
In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
