Fisherman's Walk Beach
If you do visit for a beach walk, why not use the opportunity to explore other parts of the seafront – there’s plenty to choose from. The BCP Beach Check app – free to download for any Apple or Android device, was originally created to monitor the busy beaches but for the winter time it’s the perfect app for finding another beauty spot.
Fisherman's walk beach is arguably the best of a fine set of beaches that collectively make up the Bournemouth beaches. Somewhat quieter than the main Bournemouth beaches of East Cliff beach and West Cliff beach, Fisherman's Walk is still a bustling friendly beach with acres of sand. It is one of the four Blue flag holders
Fisherman's walk possesses a coveted Blue flag which is national recognition for the very high standards of cleanliness and water purity. The beach has it's own lift so the less mobile can still easily get to and from the beach in summer. For the most people though a stroll down through the Fisherman's zigzag will take them down a gentle gradient to the beach below.
Because Fisherman's walk beach primarily a family beach and caters for families with small children, it is, during the summer months a people only beach - no dogs. But there is a dog excercise area sandwiched between Fisherman's walk and Southbourne beach to the east. The beach has its own food/drink outlets, toilets and other facilities and is a very fine and safe family beach. There is a viewing area at the top of the cliff which allows a spectacular vista from Poole Harbour entrance round to Hengistbury Head and the Isle of Wight.
