With overseas travel still very much limited, Dorset is expecting high numbers of visitors. While that is good news for businesses that rely on tourism, some people may not yet be comfortable around busy areas.
Here are our top tips for enjoying the beach this summer:
- Don’t forget the sun cream – there’s nothing more miserable than being sunburnt, especially if you have multiple days off and have to cover up to prevent getting even more sore.
- Beach huts can provide a bit of privacy and respite from the crowds and can be hired for the day or week, depending on the beach. Or put up a beach shelter to provide a bit of shade and a barrier between you and the next group of people.
- Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council have launched a beach check app so you can choose which beach to go to depending on how busy it is, or how easy it is to find parking. Download the app here: Beach Check app
- Make sure you don’t get hungry by taking a delicious picnic, or take advantage of the numerous takeaway outlets or cafes along Dorset’s beaches. If you want to cook food, it’s best to check local restrictions – for example, charcoal barbeques are only allowed between 6pm and 10.30pm on Bournemouth beaches. Gas barbeques are not permitted, and neither are bonfires or fire pits. If you do take a disposable barbeque, make sure it is put out properly and left next to the bins.
- Be sure to clear up after yourself, leaving the beach beautiful for the next people to come along.
