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.

I have to be unbiased with this review as Bournemouth is now my home town. Based on just the beaches alone, my rating is 5/5 for the following reasons; The beaches stretch from Sandbanks to Hengistbury Head and cover approximately 10 miles. This means that there is more space on the Bournemouth beaches than any other beach I can think... More

The stretch of beaches from Sandbanks in Poole to Bournemouth Pier and onto Hengistbury Head are, without doubt, the best beaches in England. They are beautifully kept and cleaned every day. They are also child friendly. The beaches are divided into sections and colour coded. Children can be given coloured bands, to coincide with the area of the beach you... More

As my Australians friends say the best family beach in England. Parking is not nearby but when you get to the beach there is everything for the family and the beach is clean
