Lovely clean beach, pier £1.20 each to go on though we thought this was over priced so didn’t pay. Toilets are on site and you can rent sun beds, deck chairs, umbrellas, windbreaks for various prices for all day use during summer time

Nice sandy beach but unfortunately the town has encroached right up to the beachfront area and the tacky nature of the city has destroyed the ambiance There are much better beaches away from the town centre. Get out to them if you can

The area is BH so anything with that prefix should do it. Or try googling Bournemouth hotels and check a couple of codes. Hope this helps.

It varies in temperature in the summer months. The sea can be quite cool but easy to get used to
