Visited in early September and the beach was very clean and also busy with people enjoying the hot September sunshine. Lifeguards were still out on duty, even on a Wednesday afternoon, & many folk were swimming as the sea is still relatively warm. Brought back lovely memories of visits when I was younger.

We visited this beach during September and was surprised by just how quiet it was, although I would image that during the weekends and summer months this beach would be alot busier. The beach itself was very clean and well kept, a great place to visit during your stay in Bournemouth.

A lovely clean and well looked after beach, all 7 miles of it! Each morning the sand is smoothed over so it looks it's best for each days visitors. Well done to all concerned.

Bournemouth beach on a Summer's day can look like a Florida beach. It is clean and well maintained and life guards are provided. Eating and drinking facilities are excellent and there are numerous toilets along the promenade. There are dog free zones and dogs allowed zones. These are well marked. The beach gently shelves and is ideal for children. There... More

A stunning, long stretch of beach with soft, white sands and clear sea. I really do love it here. My only criticism would be of the tourists who leave all their rubbish on the beach which really can spoil something beautiful. You do see the beach being cleaned every morning though! The beach near the centre of town gets extremely... More

Was very impressed by the beaches here. The groynes provide sections on the beach, most of which do not allow dogs on them during the summer but there are several sections that do, so the best of both worlds. Lovely clean sand and water.

Its like stepping back in time at Bournemouth Beach but its a nice walk and lovely sandy beach. Lots of cafes and not horrendously tacky like some beach side resorts.
