Clean and tidy, Bournemouth Beach features a long stretch of sand lapped by gentle blue waves. Spend a day of fun in and out of the water at this award-winning coastline that includes over 11 km (7 mi) of family-friendly beaches. Nestled beneath a protective cliff line, this part of the coast enjoys its own microclimate and boasts some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK. Hike to the top of the cliffs for a sweeping view toward the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks. You can rent deck chairs, sunbeds, and umbrellas at several spots along the beach, and a number of nearby stalls and cafes sell ice cream and light snacks. Make Bournemouth Beach a centerpiece of your Bournemouth vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bournemouth trip builder site.

Medium crowded beach with a nice scenic view. The beach huts look pretty. Lots of rides are for kids as well as adults to enjoy. But exclude everything you can just sit besides the sea & enjoy your precious time. Also you can take a bath in the sea.
The locals take good care of this beach and usually clean up after themselves. Friday nights throughout the summer they offer a free firework display and allow you to BBQ on the beach after 6pm. Whilst it's quite busy from lunch time onwards as you can see from the photos I've added it's pretty much empty early morning.
