Southbourne Beach - Added to Coastal Scenery in South West

I have just added this to the map of places to fly your drone at Drone Scene:

Land owner permission requirements unknown.

Beach flying with good parking other than the height of summer when the beach is very busy.
Double yellow lines de restricted from Oct to April from memory, so even better access.

Hengistbury Head to the East as seen the pic.

Bournemouth beach and town to the West. Views across to Studland and Sandbanks when clear.

Lots of cruise liners moored off through 2020.

Not a lot more flying to the East as Hengistbury Head is a BCP Council Nature Reserve with drone flying not allowed.

The originator declared that this location was not inside a Flight Restriction Zone at the time of being flown on 23/11/2020. It remains the responsibility of any pilot to check for any changes before flying at the same location.


You can’t TOAL on the nature reserve at Hengistbury but you can fly from all the beach areas around it legally ans overfly it. I suggest being aware of the nesting birds etc in the reserve though and staying high if you do fly over it…
