Shore thing...

With an incredible artificial surf reef on our doorstep, which will double the wave size and the number of surf days, Bournemouth has been nicknamed by those in the know, 'Bourno' being the British answer to Sydney's Bondi Beach. Watersports enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies are in for a treat, with sailing, surfing, wind and kite surfing, jet skiing and kayaking, available closeby.

If watersports isn't your thing, don't worry as Bourno has something to offer everyone by day and by night. The spectacular coastline offers stunning cliff side walks, or drive inland and you'll be in the New Forest with its breathtaking scenery. Bournemouth's nightlife really sizzles with an abundance of trendy new bars, restaurants and nightclubs. There are ever changing concerts and theatre performances to enjoy. Bournemouth has excellent shopping with many high street chains, independent boutiques and department stores to choose from.
