- Hotel and Local
Situated directly opposite Bournemouth Pier and Beaches with direct safe access and no busy roads to cross, the Hermitage Hotel occupies an unrivaled location within a minutes walk. We are one of a handful of Bournemouth hotels to have this luxury.
For safe bathing, the beaches have ‘KidZone’ areas, The RNLI Beach Rescue provides 7 day a week lifeguard service May and September (10am till 6pm), which is augmented by 5 voluntary lifesaving clubs at weekends and public holidays. The beach is patrolled by beach wardens over the summer and by full time, first aid trained inspectors throughout the year.
To experience Bournemouth’s impressive beaches, you can either walk or why not hop on the seafront land train that operates at regular intervals along the promenade between Hengistbury Head and Alum Chine, stopping at all beaches and also the cliff lifts.
Bournemouth is now the first beach in the UK to offer beach lockers to its visitors. The beach lockers are available all year round and offer around 200 spaces to visitors to the beach to store their valuables while enjoying the sun and sea.
