Southbourne has become a sought after part of the south coast with a lively cluster of brewpubs, cafes, and restaurants. From here, the Victorian Fisherman’s Walk nature trail cuts through woodland to the family-friendly Southbourne Beach. The coastline stretches east around Hengistbury Head, a claw-shaped peninsula and nature reserve with clifftop walks, wild flowers. Traveling west on the prominade you can easily walk or cycle into Bournemouth or even further to Sandbanks in Poole.
