A lovely walk down the pier for a great view. It has been looked after & updated. Food & drinks available. A clean beach.

Boscombe Pier is an ideal place to spend some time enjoying the beach and sea views, very little traffic noise to disturb you, some snacks available at the entrance.

Not too long, plenty of seats. Lovely views towards Bournemouth. Watch the RNLI life guards come to the aid of not so clever people with paddle boards.

There is a lot to do on this pier. Ideal for children, as there is crazy golf with a difference, musical instruments to play, and great location for photography or just sitting and watching the world go by.

A gorgeous beach, with a pier to walk along. Some shops and cafes as you leave the beach which were nice. The beach itself was sandy and clean. It was well watched by the lifeguards. My daughter loved it.

Whilst here we enjoyed the youngsters on the Crazy Golf course that runs up one side and down the other. There were Fishermen trying their luck too. Piers are for enjoyment. We did.

It’s a truly stunning pier. We love visiting in every season. It’s wonderful to just gaze out to sea at the end and there are things to keep the children occupied on the pier. Definitely one of my favourite places.

Response from BarbieMegaTraveller | Reviewed this property |
Despite Boscombe having a "no dogs during the summer" policy on the beach, I did see LOTS of dogs on the beach itself and no authority or Council staff telling them to leave, so it's worth the risk. If you're in a car I do... More
