Southbourne Beach is a stone's throw from Beach Lodge and much quieter than the beaches of Bournemouth and Boscombe, just head down Fisherman's Walk zig-zag from the cliff top. The blue flag, sandy beaches provide clean, pollution-free, kids zones, dog-free zones and smoke-free zones.
A promenade that runs from Hengistbury Head through Southbourne, past Boscombe and Bournemouth piers and on to Sandbanks provides an easy flat terrain to walk either east or west. Cycling is permitted along the promenade between certain times and BBQs are permitted on the beach after 6 p.m.
