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.

We walked along the pier and along the beach and it was so nice and clean and well looked after. Even though its December places were open and the park leading from beach into town had lots of interactive pop up tents which were interesting.

Sand quality is great for digging, its kept clean, and being 7 miles long (with Poole) it can be divided into sections to provide the requirements for different users.
