We will invest in our seafront, enhancing what is already recognised as among the cleanest and most beautiful coasts in the world, from Highcliffe to Hamworthy, Sandbanks to Southbourne, with a vibrant arc at the heart, linking Bournemouth Pier with The Pavilion and a renewed and revitalised Bournemouth International Centre.
Stretching from Christchurch, thorough Bournemouth and on to Poole is nearly 15 miles of naturally beautiful beaches, with warm, golden sand and cool, clear waters. Consisting of 24 defined beach areas, this impressive stretch of stunning coastline has won a number of Blue Flags awarded for the highest standards of cleanliness. Featuring a backdrop of picturesque cliffs, there are many cliff-top hotels offering magnificent panoramic vistas across the bay and easy access, short walks to the beach.
