Worth the walk up the pier and even on a cold damp day the British are out on the beach front. Oceanarium worth a visit and don't forget to buy your rock!!

Went to Bournemouth for the weekend bank holiday. The beach here is fantastic and has a great vibe day or night. Its just a shame that people who use the beach can not clear up there mess after the day is done. But this really is a fab beach with miles of great walks.

Although the part around the pier can get busy there is plenty of room to relax and/or play. Nice to have such clean sand. Better than Spain on a nice day!

It's a beautiful beach but I think they should have a bit for dogs because in the summer no one can walk their dogs along it and it's too busy anyway. But apart from that it's a lovely place to go and gets packed in the summer!

Lovely sandy beach with a good pier and numerous well-priced places to eat along the promenade. If weather is decent it's near-on perfect (at least for the UK!).

I am lucky enough to live in Bournemouth. We have miles of lovely clean beach where you can walk from Poole to Hengistbury Head. Along the way there are numerous cafes in which to relax and enjoy the views or take a walk on the piers at Bournemouth and Boscombe. The beach is safe for the whole family and life... More

Good day out. The beach and pier are great for the children. Very busy in the summer months, so head down the coast a bit.
