The sandy Manor Steps beach, to the east of Boscombe Pier is one of the quieter beaches in the Bournemouth area.
Boscombe Overstrand Huts
Just one mile along the coast from Bournemouth town centre lies Boscombes seafront which has recently undergone major reconstruction, being transformed into the area now know as Boscombe Spa Village. Boscombe Spa was the original spa destination first established during the reign of Queen Victoria back in 1867. The area bosts 50 specially designed beach pods with an influence from fashion designer Wayne Hemmingway. The multimillion-pound redevelopment scheme now sees this area of the beach home to many activities, there is everything from water sports to sports on the court. There are classes available, you can hire equipment from different venues on The Overstrand, with a choice of alfresco dining in restaurants, cafes and featuring live entertainment.
Boscombe Surf Reef - the regeneration of Boscombe
It is often said that traditional beach huts capture the best of the British seaside. The Beach Pods in Boscombe were designed to take the beach hut to the next level. Pod owners were allowed to have their beach pod custom-built, with running water and electricity. No more boiling the kettle on a wobbly, windy gas burner.
Boscombe East Beach includes the Portman Ravine which is the remains of a steep chine midway between West Southbourne and Boscombe, running from a point in the Overcliff Drive opposite Ravine Road (on the former Portman Estate) Portman Ravine is one of numerous zig-zag paths that provide access to Bournemouth's seafront from the clifftop.
