  • Avon beach is great for a day out. You can go for a long walk, there are a few nice coffee shops and its perfect for relaxing when the sun is shining
  • Lovely spot between Highcliffe and Mudeford beach walk. Beachhuts, golden sand, icecream, lunchs. Watersports, fishing, mini ferry rides. Expensive parking, hey ho.
  • very busy but clean beach. a few too many pebbles for effective sand castle building! Lots of cafe and food options near the carpark end. Had to use the overspill car park and have a little luck to get a space, maximum stay is 4 hours which was plenty for us but others might want all day. Large queue for the ladies toilet, so wise to time when you go to avoid 'emergencies'.
  • So accessible and family friendly. Love the whole area and the facilities: parking, restaurant, cafe, shop, fish & chips, all within walking distance
  • Lovely beach with excellent local facilities including eateries and a decent tourist shop for buckets and spades.
