Bournemouth's Artificial Reef
Bournemouth also boasts Europe's first artificial reef, the first section was laid back in August 2008. The reef is as big as a football pitch and will change the way the waves break. This will not only enhance the amount of watersports that visitors can experience, but also give existing marine life an environment in which to thrive.
