Branksome Chine

Beach Guide >

Branksome ChineBranksome Chine Beach is a beach of the finest quality with fine golden sand. The water is clean and safe, although it may sometimes be cool ! The beach slowly and gradually slopes away, ensuring it is safe for even the smallest of children.


There are 2 car parks for Branksome Chine, as well as some limlited on-road parking. As you would expect when the weather is good, the car parks fill up extremely quickly.

The larger car park (Further from the beach and up a hill !) is only a short distance away from the beach.


Branksome ChineThere are very good facilities on the promenade, including toilets (with disabled facilities), ice-cream kiosks and the Restaurant / Cafe at Bransome Chine which offers a wide selection of hot & cold meals throughout the year. There are Lifeguards on duty ( 1 May - 30 Sept.)


There are also a wide selection of watersports available from the beach including parascending, inflatable "Bronco's" or "Ringos", jet-ski hire, power boat rides and much more, although you may need to walk along the beach to find these facilities. Check what is available when you visit.

Read our brief check list on preparing for your day at the beach.
