Branksome Dene Chine Beach, a small yet stunning bit of beach popular with photographers.
What makes Branksome Dene Chine beach particularly beautiful is the dramatic cliff face which towers over the promenade and beach.
The cliffs were formed some 40 to 45 million years ago by a large river. This period was known as the “Eocene” period.
The darker parts of the cliff is made up of sand, water and vegetative matter.
The beach here is pure golden with a gentle slope and the waters calm and refreshing, if not a little cold at times!
Branksome Dene Chine beach is Poole’s last beach before you reach the beaches of Bournemouth.
There is a little kiosk selling drinks and snacks however excellent facilities are available at nearby Branksome Chine beach.
There are also a few wooden beach huts, perfect for a day out at the beach. These beach huts are available to hire by the day or by the week from Poole council, although some are available directly from the beach hut tenants. To book a beach hut in Poole you can do so online via the Poole.gov website
Barbecues can be held between 6pm and 10.30pm. Please dispose of all rubbish responsibly in the bins provided but remember to douse disposable barbecues with water after use and leave them next to the rubbish bins on the promenade for the beach cleansing team to collect once they have cooled down. Only disposable barbecues are permitted, no gas barbecues or open fires.
But probably best of all…Branksome Dene Chine Beach is dog friendly with dogs welcome here all year round so there is no excuse to leave them at home!
And for those not walking there is a small car park next to the beach for 150 cars.
