Boscombe Pier
Overview

In one of Bournemouth's thriving surfing centers is located the Boscombe Surf Reef. One of the few artificially created reefs in the world, this surf reef offers unlimited surfing opportunities to the eager and determined surfer. Unlike other surf reefs, the Boscombe Surf Reef does not create waves, but it is designed so that its mechanism acts as a ramp and pushes the waves so as o give them a great height and making them ideal for surfing. The facility is open to the public, but is not advised for beginners. And it is environmentally safe, as it acts on the natural force of the waves instead of using artificial energy, and the design of the reef also is shown to protect the coast from erosion! So grab your surf board and head to Boscombe. Call the tourist information center, +44 845 051 1700 or visit their website for more information.
