We went to dig in the sand. The sand is beautiful. We positioned ourselves in the shade of a pier stuff. It's a multi-cultural beach. Slides, deck chairs, parasols whatever you need, it's there. Nothing to dislike. Pier to walk which is charged for. Shops, ice cream parlours, cafes. Loved it.

The beach is easy to access, long and with soft sand. So if you want to be with lots of people stay by e pier, if not walk along the beach and there will always be space. There are lots of nice cafés, toilets and games areas. There are specific swimming areas with lifeguards and first aid too.

Spent a day at the beach and was very impressed at how well maintained the beach was.

There are plenty of amenities for all ages around and children and an abundance of... More

As an older person we would recommend driving down the hill and parking rather than walking it may be a bit steep for some elderly people although we did it.

Excellent, safe, clean sandy beach that rivals the Costa's. Need I say more! There is also the lovely Bournemouth Gardens where you can sit and relax with plenty of benches and shade to escape the summer sun.

By standing on the pier, the beach can be seen either side for quite some distance. The gentle lapping of the small waves on the soft clean sand, made it a peaceful comfortable walk. A few people enjoying the beach in the early morning when the sun was at a nice angle so as to be not too bright. The... More

Bournemouth had one of the best beaches on the South Coast, the problem is the 8 mile crawl every sunny weekend day getting in to Bournemouth between the end f th M27 and Ringwood. Then the same problem on the A338 when leaving Bournemouth. Tip If you want a great day at the beach get the train from Winchester or... More
