Gundimore Beach logo

Great views of the Isle of Wight and Mudeford Sandbank.

There is a designated watersports area and level access from Mudeford Quay and Avon Beach.

A mobile food outlet is on the promenade. A café, restaurant and shops are at Avon Beach and Mudeford Quay.

Horses are not permitted on the seashore between the Saturday preceding Easter Monday and the 30th September (both dates inclusive) in any year between 10am and 9pm.

Open fires, fire pits and fire bowls are not permitted at any time on the beach, promenade, cliffs, cliff tops or woodland areas. The beach is surrounded by unique cliff habitats which are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and provide a home to many of the UK’s rare species of reptiles, birds and insects. Their dry nature means they are vulnerable and sparks from open fires can cause huge damage.

For further information about beachfront cycling, e-scooters and more, visit the BCP Council website.
