Great place to blow a few cobwebs away. Wrap up warm in winter months. Take your camera plenty to photograph kite flying, kiteboarding, kitesurfing, sea, sand, landscapes and sunsets 🌅

Beautiful Hengistbury head, offers walks, views and great little Cafes. A must if your are visiting Bournemouth. Just to oggle at the Expensive Beach huts or get the ferry to Mudeford Quay is a days worth of fabulousness.

What a lovely place. We arrived via the coastal path while visiting the area on 31 November. There is a small hill there which we climbed and which gave a fantastic panorama of the area. Definitely worth a visit.

We love bring our dog for walks here! It is very peaceful or if you want to go for a run to the top and all the way to the end, it's a great work out. It's a well kept area, very clean and tidy.

Visited here while staying at Bournemouth. Must see natural shingle and stone spit about a mile and a half long leading to Hurst castle built by Henry 8th. We walked out, 45 mins but in summer you can get a ferry.
