Canford Cliffs Chine

Beach Guide >

The Canford Cliffs Chine Beach is a beach of the finest quality with fine golden sand. The water is clean and safe, although it may sometimes be on the cool side of warm ! The beach slowly and gradually slopes away, ensuring it is safe for even the smallest of children. When the tide comes in, you can find that in some areas, the amount of dry sand left is very limited, as the water comes in.


There is no car park for Canford Cliffs Chine, only on-road parking. As elsewhere, when the weather is good, the nearby roads fill up very quickly. It may be worth considering an early start and dropping off your family before parking the car. The walk down to the beach isn't too bad but it does mean walking down steps ... remember each step down is one step back up ... it can sometimes be a long walk back up if you're weighed down with all the beach goodies.


There are very good facilities on the promenade, including toilets (with disabled facilities), ice-cream kiosks and you can easily reach the hot-dog/burger bars as well as the Restaurant / Cafe at Bransome Chine which offers a selection of hot & cold meals further along the prom. There are Lifeguards on duty ( 16 July - 4 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. Check what is available when you visit.
