Beach
“Boscombe pier and beach front is only a 10 minute walk away. The beach is beautiful and less busy that Bournemouth beach. You will also find Urban Reef bar and restaurant, with a pizza restaurant attached and a Harvester. Alternatively Urban Beach bar and restaurant is situated pretty much at the end of the road which is equally as lovely as its sister restaurant on the front. ”
