Maintain safe social distancing when visiting Bournemouth, Christchurch and Pooles beaches and promenades by viewing crowd congestion levels with this app.
Published by BCP Council, this app enables visitors to make informed choices to avoid crowded areas of the beach. Each section of the coast is coloured red, amber or green depending on how congested that section of the seafront is. At the start of the day the map presents a prediction for how busy the beach is likely to become that day, based on historic data, CCTV, weather and footfall counter data. From mid-morning onwards, the colour coded map is updated hourly by our Seafront Ranger team who patrol the beach.
Links are provided within the app for general information on public toilets at the seafront, cycling, dog exercise areas and BBQ bylaws.
The app also features a feedback function.
