Terrific beach, very long, very deep and lovely sand and spotlessly clean. The Channel, or is it the Atlantic is reassuringly cold!

this is a lovely beach,it's such a shame that visitors do not respect it,too much litter.more empty bins are needed,and maybe fines for dropping litter would stop the mess,on a good note,a lovely place to visit.plenty to do for all ages.car parks to expencive.bournemouth need to up there game and stop over chargeing for things.

The beach was great and went on for miles. It's a great day out for the kids, they can play in the sand safely and walk along the promenade. The atmosphere is lovely too, relaxed and friendly. We'll definitely return next year.

I found it quite loud and busy. Too many lights, too many shops, mediocre souvenirs..Yet it's still a very nice... More

Yes lovely sandy beach - but that was about it for me. I was not impressed with the area around Bournemouth pier. The buildings around it are ugly and I am wondering if Bournemouth is now a city that happens to be beside the sea instead of a seaside town although to be fair, I didn't venture into the city...
