Sand bars often appear depending on the tide movements. Beach huts line the promenade and are available for hire along with deck chairs, sun loungers, canoes and wind breaks. The café is open all year round and popular with locals and tourists alike. During July and August a first aid post can be found at the Beach Office, where there is always someone on call for any local information that you may need.
Avon Beach is adjacent to the Bournemouth Coast Path.
