One of the most popular holiday resorts on England's south coast, Bournemouth has all the amenities needed for a memorable vacation.
Bournemouth Beach stretches for seven miles; four sections of it are blue flag beaches, recognized for their water quality and cleanliness. The town also boasts some of the UK's warmest sea temperatures, as well as views of the nearby Isle of Wight. Sun screens, windbreaks and deck chairs can be hired along the beach, and a train runs along the length of the promenade, connecting the different beach areas.
Nearby Pier Approach has plenty of places to eat and drink, as well as the town's Oceanarium.Places nearby:
