WITH clear blue skies, golden beach and sparkling sea, this stunning aerial footage captures Bournemouth's charms at its best.

The 35 second clip was filmed using a drone and shows the seafront in all its glory with the balloon, Pier Approach, BIC, Pavilion and Hermitage Hotel also being showcased.

Poole-based web design firm DSM Design are behind the video, which was filmed between May 3 and 5.

Drones are becoming increasingly popular and the CAA requires that anyone wishing to use one within a congested area or in proximity to people or property obtains permission

If you've got video you've shot of a stunning scene or view from across Dorset and the New Forest, then we'd love to see it.
