“Views wow but dogs mess everywhere along the lovely pathways”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

What a shame so many dog owners leave the mess behind . Need more dog patrols before more children loose there sight. To the ones who pick up Thankyou there are lots of dog bins.
2 large dogs not on leads frightened my grand daughter . Please be more responsible .
As for the view this pace could be so special without the dog problem

“Lovely place,on a good day you can see IOW.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is a lovely place for a nice walk with family + dogs, to see your children learn to ride their bicycle, run along the prom. to kick start your exercise. The location provide planty of parking along the prom. or on the side road. The locals are friendly, the air is fresh. What's not to love.

“Lovely”

Cycle out there from bournemouth. All off road, only 6.5 miles each way, great fun. Have a cuppa at the little beach cafe at the head it's great.

“Iron age fort/port super views and spit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Really worth going to. Park by cafe (parking not cheap) walk up the head then continue to look down on spit with beach huts and ferry to other side (Mudeford) with nice pub. Great views of Christchurch harbour and beach looking back to Bournemouth.Lots of birds including sand martins and other wildlife. Lovely views also to Isle of Wight and Needles

“Beach hut island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Wee short trip on boat from Mudeford Quay to Hengistbury Head. Nice little restaurant on the island but not much else to do unless you are fortunate enough to own a beach hut there
