Lovely walk up headland

We have loved visiting here since we moved to Bourenmouth 17 years ago, lovely walks in sunshine with great views over Christchurch and Isle of Wight

This is one of those gems that you hear about and may never visit, well if your in the area then definitely go check it out, ignore the cost of parking and take a minute to actually think what your paying for, you get gorgeous coastline, sandy beach, lovely walk, cafe and a train ride if you want it :)...

Great for individuals, families and couples. Great walking on the sand, having something to eat at the end or going on a little boat trip across to Christchurch bay. Fab.

Lovely walk with the family up to the head. Great views and lovely for the kids to play on the beach. Nice ride back on the train and visit to the gift shop. Well worth a visit.

Picturesque landscape. Perfect for bike tours and walks. Recommend taking the ferry from Mudeford Quay and then walk to Boscombe.

Just to say that the reviews are true in that this is a great place for a visit. Did not visit the visitors Centre which closed on Sunday at 4.00 pm. Went for a walk , Very windy day. Great views and a good place to walk the dog and run the legs off any children.

Had a walk around Hengistbury Head with a group of friends. Walked around the beach-huts and back over the Head. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the views of Isle of Wight were amazing.

Apart from the dog having the time of her life running endlessly this is an amazing walk! Stunning views all around...a lot to take in. Lovely cafe before you leave or after to come back....A lovely place.

We had a pleasant walk, saw plenty of people walking dogs but not much else. Nice views of the coastline. Very good little cafe.
