Beautiful walks

Nice to go to for long walks. If you want to clear your head or just wanted to relax. A very tidy beach shore. Cold wind and water.

This lovely long sandy beach has to be the best on the South Coast. The beach is well looked after by the authorities and is well provided for with cafes and toilets.

I'm so lucky to live here. I moved from Reading in 2003. It's so pretty and the sea is great to swim in, especially during summer seasons!

We walked from Boscombe along the beach and promenade to Sandbanks & on to Poole Quay. A great walk with good varying scenery. About 12 miles & railway station convenient in Poole to get train back to Bournemouth for £4.10 a piece single. A great day!

Walking from the pier to Poole along the promenade is a lovely way to spend a morning with lots of places to stop and enjoy a coffee
