It doesn't matter what the weather is there is always something different to see, smell and enjoy! Car parking is easy, toilets are available and to reward yourselves with a hot drink after your walk, is the icing on the cake!

3 of us had full english. Food was very good but took ages to get served with drinks and food. On second coffee before food arrived, had to get our own sauces and then took ages to get the bill.

You could not find a more user friendly beach for both children and dogs. It is lovely to see them in the water together. We like to go to other beaches in the area, but keep on returning to Branksome Dene Chine.
