Sunny January weekend

We were so lucky with the weather, we took the land train, did some walking and had a great run along the beach. Bournemouth is a great location for an out of season break

We visited with our Golden retriever as a treat for her after having had a large litter. Stayed at The Royal Bath Hotel just 3 mins walk away. Well we all enjoyed the experience. Beautiful, clean and well maintained golden sands for miles in both directions. She ran, swam and dug for hours and loved every moment. We liked all... More

The beach was lovely and we enjoyed a great walk along the promenade to Sandbanks. The only thing we did not enjoy was cyclists riding to fast. Great views out to sea and the pier unlike during summer was free to walk around.

We visited here for 2 days and it has to be one of the best beaches on the south coast. Even during the winter there is still so much to do. Its a perfect sandy beach to visit if you are in the Bournemouth area.

Beautiful 7 mile bay, with lovely sandy beaches and safe swimming. Great place for a walk which can be as short or as long as you want along the promenade. Bournemouth Pier has a restaurant and activity centre with zip-lining to the beach. Boscombe Pier has crazy golf with golf balls that feed the fish when they drop into the... More

Staying in the sun cliff hotel overlooking the beautiful beach and coves with great dog walking and a great pier, I definitely want to move to Bournemouth one day.

Southbournes main beach is now better due to new sand being imported. Well worth a visit and it's only a 1 and half mile walk along the cliff.

Beautiful clean beach. Most romantic setting for loved up couples + thin sand, south facing and perfect for sunbathing and building sand castles with the children. Also, ice cream boat pops over during school holidays.
