I have always been a great fan of Bournemouth.. Over the past 25years.... BUT I have to say that on this visit what a let down... It was so tacky dirty and you could not walk along the prom... Loads and loads of young people sitting where ever making it hard to walk anywhere... I have been Southend. Brighton and... More

Despite it being rainy and cold, we still managed to enjoy our beach experience at Bournemouth! The sand is relatively clean and the sea is beautiful with a lovely pier to see all the cliffs and miles and miles of ocean. The locals are friendly and helpful and the food shops are reasonable and tasty (try Harry ramsdens fish and... More

Lovely beach with beautiful sand which stretches down a couple of miles! Its rather clean too - with a wonderful view of the coast. Great place to go with family or even by yourself!

Our first trip to Bournemouth definitely not our last. Visited with my husband and 5 year old daughter and stayed for a week in a local hotel. I had pre planned most things with meals out locally and having reviewed Trip adviser over the previous weeks I knew exactly what we would do/visit. Our Hotel was local and we would... More

I suppose that most piers nowadays are full of carousels and neon lights, but this just got a bit too tacky for our taste. Probably great fun for the children and families but not for us.

Lost count of the visits to this beach - we had a long weekend and stayed overnight in Brighton and came to Bournemouth for another overnight and you just cannot compare the beaches. Bournemouth is 2 miles of golden sand with clear to pale blue water on a calm sunny day. The water is never warm though no matter how... More

Well kept and clean. Friendly atmosphere. Not flanked by those noisy amusement arcades that spoil so many nice sea fronts

This beach is beautiful with silky sand and beautiful views of Purbeck and Isle of Wight. At least two miles long so plenty of room if you move down slightly. Loos just by the pier. Buuutttt..... Fag ends everywhere which I've never noticed before. Made digging in the sand less appealing. The sand is smoothed over at the end of... More

Probably the cleanest sandy beach I have been on. The water is cold even at this time of year but the view when it's clear is fantastic. When you look left then right of the pier you see a lovely curve of Coast line. Loads to do around the pier too if you have kids.
