Alum Chine Beach – What You Need To Know BEFORE You Visit

(Last Updated On: January 19, 2023)


Alum Chine Beach is a Blue Flag award winner and is considered to be one of the most popular beaches in Bournemouth.

It is renowned for its spaciousness, cleanliness, and combination of sandy and shingle surfaces on its shoreline.

The beach can be found to the west of Bournemouth, further along the coast from both the Bournemouth Pier and the main part of town.

Because it features a large adventure playground with a pirate theme, public restrooms that are equipped with baby changing facilities, lost children centers, RNLI lifeguard stations, pubs, and ice cream kiosks, this beach is very popular with young families.

Alum Chine Beach is home to a number of brightly coloured beach huts that can be rented out throughout the year in addition to 21 new super huts that provide guests with a greater selection of overnight accommodations at the beach.

How to get to Alum Chine Beach

The closest bus stations are Studland Road and Chine Crescent Road, which are both under a 5 minute walk.

You can also take the train to Bournemouth Station and take a taxi from here, or choose to walk which takes around 40 minutes.
