LOVE Bournemouth beach. Miles and Miles of sandy beach with plenty to do in the area. Always go here at least a couple of times a year even though I live 2 hours away. Highly recommended.

Wonderrful expanse of sandy beach at this time of year. Area is clean and I particularly like the promenade sign posting which is informative without being intrusive. However, I doubt I would wish to be there in high season

Absolutely love coming here. The beach is fantastic and there is plenty to do. Loads of choice when it comes to eating and it's always well kept.

Gorgeous... even in the wet! The views are stunning. Safe and Sandy. Fantastic for strolling and watching the world go by, sitting on the lovely sand, or having a good walk between Sandbanks and Hengistbury Head.

Wasn’t too cold. I wouldn’t say warm but plenty of people were in the sea.
