I am blessed to live in Bournemouth and right near the sea. Most days I walk my dogs on the clifftops and I stand for a few minutes looking out to sea. This sets me up for the rest of the day.

Even though it had been wet in the morning by afternoon the sand was okay. The sea was warm enough for the kids to paddle in.

I Love the british seaside, and this is as fine a sandy beach as you will find. Most resorts have a promenade like this where you can walk along pausing from time to time to sit and rest and take the air, enjoy the view, maybe read the paper. Lovely. visiting Bournemouth today with an eighty year old relative and... More

Best beach in the UK. Nice yellow sandy beach with a beautiful coastline that sweeps around the south coast. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful beach. Very busy obviously with the air show going on, but such a good atmosphere. Friday, we sat on the dog beach, and this was quieter, very clean and could still see all the flights. Saturday we sat on the main beach, very busy, but a wonderful day. We hired two parasols as it was so sunny, and that... More

It's been a rainy few days but we've had a lot of fun on the beach and in the water, the beach is very long, not so much to do on a rainy day but beautiful when the sun comes out, loved it

Lovely sandy beach. We played on it for hours. There is a lift that takes you up the steep hill back to the prison, whoops, hotel. Only a pound. Beach had some washed up jellyfish, big ones. But can’t police every inch and remedy everything. The shops/attractions are on the tacky side, but this is to be expected. On the... More

Lovely long clean beach. Litter pickers on the go all the time picking up after people who couldn't be bothered to access the endless bins available. Endless views, near to town and amenities

Bournemouth has a very long beach with golden sand. Is ideal for kids as well as they can play with their little plastic toys. In the summer there are attractions for everyone such as jet-ski, trambolines, bikes and so... Plan yous visit early in the morning if you want to find a parking space.
