Bournemouth offers sea and sand

Anyone looking to break away from more urban areas and enjoy the outdoor life should consider relocating to Bournemouth.

The coastal town has a lot to offer and anyone looking for property for sale in Bournemouth could be pleased to discover the wide choice on offer.

Bournemouth is home to Europe's first artificial surf reef, which has been transformed into a special coastal activity, which is used by a whole host of watersports fans to indulge in diving, surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing.

The development also meant the seaside town underwent a multi-million pound revamp that has transformed the range of facilities available to local residents and tourists.

As well as the seaside, there are plenty of chances to indulge in some retail therapy with the town centre area home to a number of chain stores, such as Debenhams and Boots, while there is also an array of locally-owned shops as well.

For art fans, then there is an active theatre scene, with the Pavilion Theatre hosting many different stage shows throughout the year.

There is also the Bournemouth International Centre, which is the town's key concert and live music venue and has hosted a number of top acts, such as Plan B and Jimmy Carr.

Pavilion Dance is also Bournemouth’s national dance house, which has a 200-seat theatre space, as well as several studios.

One of the highlights of the year is the Bournemouth Air Festival, which is the UK's biggest, best and free aviation festival and takes places during the last weekend of August.

It has been voted one of the ten best air shows in the world by USA Today and the 2013 event attracted more than 1.3 million people and 2,000 boats, as well as seeing a performance from the stunning Red Arrows display team.

Bournemouth is also well-placed for those who enjoy the occasional day trip or short break, with the attractions of Cornwall and Bath all within a relatively short distance.
