This beach is beautiful, the tractors are out most days, combining it flat and keeping it clean. You can walk all the way to the Poole Harbour ferry on this golden, soft sand beach. Lovely.

Bournemouth beach is extremely well maintained with lovely soft clean. If you enjoy a good walk this a great way to spend the day. Quaint beach huts and lovely places to have a coffee or lunch.

Have been visiting Bournemouth for over 65 years and now live only 40 minutes away, the sand is so good, the views are outstanding and the climate is one of the UKs best. Mybown children loved it as do my grand children now.

Dogs are not allowed of their lead anywhere near the pier, however if you walk past the westcliff train, there are some areas where you can. Same applies on the other-side of the pier towards Boscombe.

There are several Premium Inns in the area I suggest these would be the best value.
