What we're about

BeachPeople is an Ocean Sports club for adults that has the seven miles of flat sandy beaches around Bournemouth as its playground.

We started in Jan '18 and have had more than 60 events in that one epic summer including beach BBQs, SUP expeditions, fin swims, surfing, volleyball, beach rides - the options are endless down here.

I'm Phil - I had 18 years feeling trapped in London without knowing just how close this all this was (under two hours from Waterloo direct). I spent a year of weekends in pubs and hotels 'looking for something' and when I found the South Coast of Dorset I moved within a month. It's the best decision I ever made.

The only problem left was getting to know similar people - hence the Club - and now that's all the bridge you need to come explore the warm clear water and stunning countryside to find your inner BeachPerson.

The Club has its own dedicated (i.e. private - no Facebook snooping) social site at BeachPeople.org but for now perhaps just join the free Meetup part and watch the next chapter unfold.

I'll be up to meet you soon.

To The Beach!

Pool Party Eastcliff

Needs a location

Date TBD but these are usually good fun The pool fronts a large hotel and is shielded from the wind close to the beach (cliff top) so if you feel like a trip to the beach with a Plan B then this may be a good time to head to Waterloo.
