The Air festival was on and it was free, watch it from the cliff tops for a good view. There was plenty of room to view for everyone.

Unfortunately whenever we go, I always end up either by: - locals with dogs who sit there and walk all over our beach towels (gross) or - locals from the neighboring council estates playing football, showing no regard for other sunbathers / beachgoers when time after time they kick balls on people. Unfortunately on public beaches like this you of... More

Beach is always lovely and clean. The warning flags were on display with lifeguards watching over the beach. Plenty of deckchairs to hire but also plenty of public seats to take the weight off your feet. Lovely to stroll along the beach and paddle

Went on the train which runs from bournemouth pier (right outside the seaquarium) to Alum Chimes. Can have unlimited travel pay day for £5 an adult. A single trip for £2.20... More

We had a lovely weekend in Bournemouth , the beach and surrounding areas clean and people friendly. Disappointing that there are no gift shops or coffee shops near to the beach.. Come on Bournemouth give us more choices, we don't all want to go into town for a little gift shopping!
