Manor Steps Beach



Bournemouth, Dorset, BH5 1FH
Manor Steps Beach


Manor Steps Beach is Bournemouth's Blue Flag beach in a delightful location on Bournemouth’s seafront, East of Boscombe Pier.

During the summer season or sunny days, use the Visit Bournemouth Beach Checker App to see how busy all the beaches are along this 15 miles stretch.

This area is home to 'Bournemouth Beach Lodges' - 24 lodges providing overnight stay accommodation right on the beach for up to 6 people, each with their own kitchen, shower and toilet.

Manor Steps also has public toilet facilities, a refreshment kiosk and is home to a small manned beach office.

Manor Steps zig-zag offers easy pedestrian access from Boscombe Overcliff Drive on the cliff top. The path lights up from dusk with solar powered lighting.

Travel down (or up!) in style using Fisherman's Walk Cliff Lift, a short distance away and approach on foot along the promenade. Please note the lift closes for the winter season.  From every direction, enjoy great views as you saunter along, or stop for an ice cream.
