If you’re going to Dorset, Bournemouth beaches will make you stay longer.

In addition to that, according to Hotels.com, Bournemouth is famous for having a strong music scene. It has earned the reputation of being one of the greatest venues outside of London to attend major concerts and shows.

A major and popular beach resort in the county of Dorset in southwest England, Bournemouth town is generally green, prosperous, and devoid of both heavy industry and violent crime. According to a bank study conducted in 2007, Bournemouth was the happiest place in the United Kingdom.

A chine runs along the length of the principal promenade of Bournemouth, approaching every couple of hundred yards. They include Alum Chine, Branksome Chine, Durley Chine, Honeycomb Chine, and Middle Chine.

A chine, by the way, is a small river valley formed when a river no longer flows past coastal cliffs to reach the ocean.

Compared to any other place in the United Kingdom, in Dorset, Bournemouth beaches have earned more accolades for cleanliness and safety than any other. One of them is the “Best Beach In The UK” award given by Environmental Campaigns or ENCAMS (now known as Keep Britain Tidy).

In a massive channel dredging operation carried out by the councils of Bournemouth and Poole years ago, the mud from the bay was sprayed onto the beaches in huge quantities (700,000 cubic meters) and mysteriously transformed into fine sand a few days later.

As a result, in Dorset, Bournemouth beaches are now around 20 meters wider, and the sand is approximately 2 meters deeper.

According to Tripadvisor, the best beaches in Bournemouth include the following:

(a) Alum Chine Beach

(b) Bournemouth Beach

(c) Hengistbury Head Beach

(d) Mudeford Sandbank Beach

(e) Southbourne Beach

These beaches were also mentioned in the list of best Bournemouth beaches by Expedia. It also included Boscombe Beach, Canford Cliffs Beach, and Shore Road Beach.
