Great place to go for a walk along the coast. Fantastic place to walk the dogs. Lovely beachside houses along the coast and a nice little cafe to have a rest after a long walk.

Lots to interest families even with wide spread of ages. Walk up to top quite steep but worth it. Good tarmac track for scooters/bikes/skates out to the beach huts and café at the end, with the sheltered harbour on one side and where the beach...More

Hengistbury Head marks the east end of Bournemouth/Christchurch beach, and is a contrast to the sandy beach. There is a paved path up the headland, through the scrub, past viewpoints and artefacts. The modern visitor centre is worth a visit

This is a nature reserve so once you park up in the large car park and start walking there are no cars just the 'land train'. Bear off to the right towards the coastline and upon reaching it turn left and climb up onto the...More

Good brisk walk. Windy at the time. A few people walking about too. Different paths to take. Some more strenuous than others. Great views out to sea.

Yes, although I would suggest keeping dogs on leads due to live stock but awesome views. Visit the Hungry Hiker after your walk as they have a good selection of light bites.
