I went to Bournemouth in June 2011 and the sand was fluffy, soft and there was lots of it. It was really lovely. I ran around barefooted with no problems! It looked like a beach somewhere in the Med.
I decided to go again in June 2012 and this time it was thin, hard with lots of stones and rocks and had to be very careful barefooted. It felt more like a building site.
Why is this?? I'm put off going this year because I was very disappointed.
