We visited on one of the hottest days this year and we've never seen such a busy beach in England before. We set up just West of the Pier. The beach itself is lovely...made up of nice soft sand. The entry into the sea is great....it stays shallow for a long way out. On the days we were there the... More

Absolutely stunning scenery, beautiful blue sea,miles of golden sand, then you see the litter....9pm and its unbelievable,the sheer amount, and yet big recycling bins everywhere, and people just haven't bothered to tidy up after themselves. Pity the workers maintaining it to the standard commented on in other reviews

We were here in mid June, so still the off season. It wasn't very crowded but the beach was clean and raked. Mostly arcades at the beach, very few shops

We had a great day here, swam in the beautiful clean sea and the beach was fab. Busy but it's so long that you can easily spread out. The only critism if any is that you could have even more laces to grab an ice cream or fish and chips along the front. But we will come back here for... More

.This beach has very easy access from the walk way. There are food and drink cafes also very close to the beach. There are lots of Lifeguard's on view making it a very safe beach..

The best beach in this country by far. Why can't all the others be like this. Loved every second of the day. Wish I lived closer Bournemouth is certainly on my 'go back to again' list
