We visited Sunday 20th beach lovely, albeit very busy - few things marred our visit - the walk from Bournemouth rail station through the first subway heading toward town/seafront was grim, with forlorn gardens overgrown - what a terrible advert for the town. We loved the gardens by the theatre / sea front, but initial walk from the rail station... More

We spent a fabulous day on the beach with the kids, there is a wonderful Landtrain that costs only 17.50 for a family day ticket that brings you up and down from Duley Chine to Boscombe when you are tired playing on the beach. Carnival at Bournemouth pier, icecream sellers every few steps and an amusement arcade that is every... More

Always love this beach you've the hustle and bustle in the main pier area or can travel either way (with pepper pig train) to a quieter spot, very clean. Chairs brollies and loungers available, great Italian right at the end if you take the train right past the aquarium

I have always lived in Bournemouth, and feel that the beach is one of the reasons I will never move. Every summer without fail I will go to the beach and enjoy everything that is there. Endless amounts of sand, meaning you will always get a nice spot, even on really busy days, as well as plenty of fun stuff... More

Way too busy!! There is often literally so many people you cannot even see the sand!! The only time its not busy is when the weathers poor. The surrounding area is great but the beach its self, too much effort than its worth. You may as well go to sandbanks, its less busy, sandy but there is less to do... More

Beautiful scenery. Not for peace and quiet lovers - on a hot day it is crowded. Parking can be busy too. However lots of nearby attractions and beach looks clean. Lifeguards appear to be on duty and vigilent

Wonderful stretch of clean sandy beach; which is cleaned each morning from Southbourne to Sandbanks. Great for families. Good supply of beach huts; which can be rented. Deck chairs are also available at various points along the beach

There is so much to see. We saw a small hawk catch a grass hopper, watched people surfing, sailing, kayaking, swimming, jogging, cycling, skateboarding. There are lots of facilities along theway. The sand is clean and soft ... what more could you ask for?
