Avon Beach, between Mudeford and Steamer Point Woods, has been sold.
The Derham family, which has been the owner the Avon Beach Company since 1934 and associated for even longer, is passing the beach to another family.
New owners Peter and Steve Hayward intend to continue serving breakfast at the cafe but start opening in the evening for dinner. Teas will also be available.
The beach bookshop is the best on the coast.
