"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Christchurch Bay (Barton-On-Sea) Beach Weather and Tides

Christchurch Bay is a resort beach at Barton on Sea on the south-west coast of Hampshire. It looks out across Christchurch Bay with views of the Isle of Wight to the east. The shingle beach has rock groynes and a steep slope, flattening to shallow sandy flats that are exposed when the tide retreats. There are relatively stable paths along the beach which is backed by 30 metre high clay cliffs.

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.
