It can be a tricky task to choose a beach whilst staying in Bournemouth, but we have to say that Alum Chine pretty much has it all. This Blue Flag beach has everything you could need for a family beach holiday, including safe bathing, a paddling pool, children’s playground, and the award-winning Alum Chine Tropical Gardens just a short walk away.
If you fancy a day without the crowds then bear Alum Chine in mind as it tends to get less busy than some of its neighbours. The sand was replenished not long ago so there's even more of it to enjoy during a visit now, and if you fancy going all out you can hire a beach hut. There's a seasonal dog ban (as is the case for most Bournemouth beaches) and the beach is an easy walk from some shops and restaurants that will top off your day by the sea.
This is the kind of beach that visitors often discover by accident and then return to for the rst of their holiday, and it's close enough to all the amenities to make it a convenient one to enjoy too.
