20 Minutes away from Shamba!

If you have ever stayed with us at Shamba then you will know that we have no shortage of on site entertainment however should you wish to explore the surrounding areas, we have some big news for you!

From our holiday park, a short 20-minute drive following the A338 will see you in a town called Bournemouth. Bournemouth town has endless shopping, eateries, beautiful public gardens and even an Oceanarium but the main attraction for many is Bournemouth’s sandy Beach.

Each year, TripAdvisor gives awards across multiple categories including ‘The Best Beach’.

This year Bournemouth Beach has been named the best beach in the UK!

Not only that, Bournemouth Beach was also named the fifth best beach in Europe and the 14th best beach in the world by TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards!

TripAdvisor stated: “Bournemouth’s seven-mile stretch of sandy beach has something to offer everyone with its traditional seaside attractions, famous beach huts for hire, water sports and stunning views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks. The bay also boasts its own micro-climate, giving it some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK”.

Enjoying the beach at Bournemouth

It is truly terrific to see Bournemouth beach officially crowned as the best beach in the entire country as it allows every visitor of Shamba to experience the number one beach in the country, should they wish!

With Shamba being situated on the Dorset-Hampshire boarder, we are reminded daily of how beautiful this part of the country is, what with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site so close to us as well as The New Forest National Park. We hope that the new found glory surrounding our local beach entices new visitors to Bournemouth so that they too can enjoy the award winning natural beauty right around the corner from us.

Hayley Coleman, spokesperson for TripAdvisor added: “Even with the lack of hot weather that the UK is known for, our beaches still stand up as some of the best rated in the world – and all on our doorstep”.

Bournemouth Beach

We agree. The results tell all and with Bournemouth coming ahead of beaches in Sicily, Crete and Gran Canaria, it is no wonder as to why so many Brits are choosing to stay in England for their holidays of recent!
