Lovely beach, bars and restaurants nearby. Down steep hills or steps from the Chine end, but I believe flatter if approaching from the pier.

Such a beautiful beach!! Just a short walk from Bournemouth, quiet and clean with a relaxed family feel. A great option away from the crowd.

A great stretch of beach with decent public toilets and a cafe nearby. Parking can be tricky in the summer months, but you can get there by walking through Alum Chine which is lovely.

Nice little beach with a walk by the sea front into Bournemouth. Plenty of places to have a coffe or ice cream
Car park a bit pricey.

Great beach for those with kiddies, perfect dog control on the beaches. Be advised the pathway up to the main road (and bus stop to town) is very steep for those with mobility issues.

Love this part of the world and love this beach.
Beautiful golden sand and stunning views.
Love the fact the beach is split into sections and dogs are allowed all year round 🐾🐾
Have been here in the sun and the rain and it really doesn't matter.
Make a point of spending lots of time here everytime we visit Bournemouth 🏖️
