A nice and clean beach, suitable for families. I did not dislike anything about this beach. I would deem this beach to be one of the more better beaches in the UK.

really picturesque view in the sun and the rain!! clean beaches with a lot to do at Bournemouth, e.g. the ZipWire, and Boscombe has a lot of activity, interspersed with cafes and nosheries!

My first ever visit to Bournemouth and what a pleasant one it was. The beach is spotless and what a rare sight to see a Pier these days. Highly recommended and cannot wait to return in the Summer.

Lovely well lit promenade for night time walks. Many little beachside cafes to sit and watch the world go by and listen to the sea crashing onto the beach. Great pier to walk along for magnificent views all around the bay.

Clean and far less crowded than the summer months. Improvements currently being carried out - should be great for 2015.

We visited in November and it was beautiful for walking. Clean, sandy wide and pretty with plenty of toilets and good amenities. Parking was pay and display at 60p per hour which we felt was good value. We went in November so don't know if it says the same all year round. Great for children Attractions and restaurants very close.... More

We visited on bright sunny winters day and the beach is as lovely as ever . However it could do with more seating on the pier . It is a shame that the rest of bournemouth has gone downhill .

Bournemouth is making a lot of investment to improve the visitor experience but in Winter, just the stroll along the promenade with views to the Isle of Wight (East) and Studland Bay (west) is a delight.
