Welcome to South Coast Media


The home of The Christchurch Eye, Highcliffe, Burton & Bransgore Eye and Southbourne Eye community magazines. 

Our community magazines are quality ‘coffee table’ magazines that bridge the gap between local free newspapers and expensive regional glossies providing an affordable and effective advertising medium for people who serve the local area. These A5 magazines are printed bi-monthly and distributed every month of the year. This enables us to double our exposure over that of any of our competitors and this is something we are very proud of. Over 85% of our customers repeat their adverts which is proof in the pudding that we must be doing something right! 

Research has proven that unlike leaflets and newspapers that end up in the bin the next day, if not sooner, our magazines are kept and referred to again and again. The balanced content of advertisements with regular features and editorials as well as a mix of trivia, puzzles and useful local information, ensure that there’s always something for everyone. 

Businesses and organisations in and around Christchurch, Highcliffe and Southbourne gain a competitive edge by advertising in our magazines. Christchurch, Highcliffe and Southbourne are renowned for their close community feel and local business support. Increase local awareness of your business products or services by advertising in our hugely popular community magazines.

Written by the community, for the local community

I have been very impressed by the large number of people who have commented on articles of mine in the Christchurch Eye. Whilst I have been President of the Christchurch Chamber of Trade and Commerce, I have often found my comments mentioned in the local papers, but I cannot remember having as much feedback as I have had from the Eye articles. It is clearly widely read.
