Destination: Bournemouth

Good for: Watersports, Sunday roasts and beer.

If your budget doesn’t stretch to a jaunt overseas and Kernow, Devon and Wales are a bit far than you can be right on trend with a ‘staycation’ on the south coast. Sure it’s not as consistent swell wise as the west coast but the way the weather is these days swell is just as likely there as anywhere! When it’s on Bournemouth has great banks around the pier and is punchy when small.
Of course there are side benefits like loads of entertainment on land, the New Forest is right there, the night life is banging and the bikini quota on the beach is off the scale. Not to mention putting much needed coin into the British economy.
