This long beach is served by a number of car parks and is a beautiful place to visit for a walk, a sit to watch the world go by or to treat yourself to a coffee or snack or a meal from the eateries on offer just behind the walkway.

Great location, you can walk round from here to the quay (a short stroll) and catch a ferry across to Hengisbury Head at a nominal price. We enjoyed a beach day and gorgeous food in the adjoining restaurant and would visit again. The only downside is you need to get down early as parking is limited.

We had a lovely time at the beach last weekend and lots of families were out there enjoying the nice sunny day.

There’s outdoor seatings for picnic and nearby eatery for dine in or take away. Also an ice cream place!

Recommended to come during the summer.

Lovely sandy beach. Miles of it. Not overcrowded when we went. Sandy at the top of the beach but pebbly close to the sea

A lovely long, sandy beach with lots of space.
Very popular spot.
Some parts of the beach are dog-friendly but be sure to use the right areas.
Pity about the stones/pebbles between the beach and the sea which are a bit sore on the feet unless you have beach shoes on or use your flip-flops.
Avon Beach Car Park very close so very handy.
FREE Public Toliets available.
Beach huts to hire by the day but at a HUGE £££

This is one of my favourite beaches, it’s not crowded & lots of picnic benches which is perfect for families. They have a shop, coffee hut & disabled toilet all close by. We had a perfect day here & can’t wait to visit again really soon.

Not the best beach in the area. Traffic around Christchurch is gridlocked and jams are normal throughout the summer. Parking is limited and the only restaurant is very expensive. The beach is pebbly so you need water shoes and in summer the seaweed washes in and creates problems with flies. Best bet is to drive to Southbourne where the beach is bigger sandier and parking is easier.

This is a beautiful beach. The water is shallow so is safe for children. Dogs are not allowed on the beach in summer months.
The Noisy Lobster provides snacks, meals, drinks and ice creams for beach goers. There are several car parks serving the beach.

There are 6 disabled spaces out of 99 spaces. Given the logistics regarding the % of older people in South Hampshire this is a disgrace. Disabled people beware, there is only 1 disabled toilet. If you don't have a radar key, The shop and 'maintenance' have a key but you have to travel to the shop to get it. Also, ensure you have £5 for a deposit with you. There's no notice on the door to tell you any of this. I'm disabled, the least mobile category of people and yet the non disabled toilets aren't locked, is this a form of discrimination against the disabled?
