Dorset Reports

Southbourne, Dorset

Review of Southbourne by Jane Browne on June 7th, 2006
Southbourne is beautiful! Ideally located between the cosmopolitan town of Bournemouth and historical Christchurch with it's Priory and Quay. Southbourne itself is ideal for a quiet family or couples holiday. If you're looking for relaxation with option of loads to do around you then it's the place to go. The cliff lift or zig zag path leads down to 9 miles of sandy beaches from Hengisbury Head Nature Reserve to Poole Harbour. On the cliff itself you will find a childrens play area, crazy golf and putting. You won't find any amusement arcades here. Go inland a little and you'll be in the New Forest. It's the perfect location for a relaxing holiday.
