Busy Beach? Know Before You Go with a brand new app!

A brand new app has been launched by Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Tourism to help you – our visitors and residents – stay safe and well when you visit our beautiful award-winning beaches.

We know how important your well-being is which is why, when you decide to visit our beaches, you get to #KnowBeforeYouGo and can have peace of mind knowing your safety is our number one priority.


Whether you’re stretching your legs for a lovely evening walk or armed with a bucket and spade ready for a full weekend of sandy frolics, you can search for your slice of heaven with minimum fuss. The simple traffic-light system, updated with the latest technology regularly throughout the day by our on-site seafront rangers, shows which beaches across our glorious 15-mile coastline are the least congested so you can find your hot spot without the hotspots.

Read more about the functionalities of the app – which also provides users the option to give feedback – here. The app is currently available on the Apple App Store and Google Play and was developed in collaboration with BCP Council.

#RespectProtectEnjoy our destinations, #LeaveOnlyFootprints and bask in the sun’s warm embrace.
