Southbourne beach

Southbourne is generally quieter than the other Bournemouth beaches, and therefore popular with locals, it is easily accessed via the Fisherman's Walk Cliff Railway, which also serves Boscombe and Bournemouth. Plentiful parking and a promenade with beach huts and a range of refreshments.
