Beautiful walk and great for dogs

Lovely scenery, beautiful in all seasons. Great for dog walking, lots of open space for pets to run around. Great to walk along the seafront or up and over the head. Various paths... read more

Lovely scenery, beautiful in all seasons. Great for dog walking, lots of open space for pets to run around. Great to walk along the seafront or up and over the head. Various paths through the woodland. Does get windy so would advise to dress sensibly according to weather! Well worth a visit though. Also if you walk to the beach... More

This is a great place for a walk all around the headland, if you walk all the way around you need to be aware the second half of the walk is on the beach. There is a visitor centre and lovely views to the inner harbour and the backdrop of the beach huts can also make a good photoshoot. You... More

I regularly walk my three dogs here at 7am. For me it is the perfect time to go. In the winter I experience the most extraordinarily amazing sunrises. It is peaceful and affords the most fantastic views across the ocean and the bay of Bournemouth. The Isle of White is in the near distance showing the polar bear on the... More

Hengistbury Head is very good. It can be very bracing when walking along the footpath that leads to the Mudeford Spit (near the Beach Huts). Very healthy walk indeed

Great dog walking area, but there is one thing it is quite crowded when the sun comes out and some families don't supervise their children especially on bikes and scooters so the dog walkers or photographers get shouted at. It's the parents' responsbility to look after their children's safety not the public.

This is a great place to go for a good walk with amazing scenery. Especially if you have a dog too. There is a huge car park and a cafe. Also a small park for children and a little train that goes to Mudeford and back. Wear sensible shoes and clothes as ground quite rugged. Walk to the beach area... More
