Alum Chine Beach is probably one of Bournemouth's favourite Blue Flag award winning beaches, particularly loved by the locals for its wide, exceptionally clean, sandy and shingle beaches situated further to the West of Bournemouth, away from the hustle and bustle of Bournemouth Pier and the town centre.
It's hugely popular with young families due to a pirate-themed large adventure playground, toilets with baby changing facilities, lost children centres, RNLI lifeguard stations, pubs and ice cream kiosks. Children will also delight at waving to the land train which drives past frequently on the promenade from Bournemouth Pier to Alum Chine Beach.
Alum Chine is home to a beautiful Tropical Garden which is situated to the rear of the beach just into Alum Chine and immediately above the children's play ground.
Award winning Alum Chine Beach also has an abundance of colourful beach huts to rent all year round from the local beach office. 21 new super huts have recently been constructed offering a wider variety of accommodation at the beach. Why not book your beach hut today!
On a clear day enjoy excellent views out over the Solent of the Isle of Wight and Old Harry's Rocks.
