Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.

Tell us what you think about Bovisand Bay Beach

The main beach at Bovisand is a sheltered bay of yellow sand with cliffs either side. It is popular with locals and families. There is a large expanse of flat sand when the tide is out, which is ideal for ball games and warms the water with the incoming tide.
