Beaches in Poole
Dorset has some beautiful coastline and the beaches of Poole are no different. Sandbanks Beach looks like a tropical destination with its golden sands. The beach is championed by the European Commission as one of the few areas in the country which has achieved the highest standards of cleanliness. The beach is perfect for families and water sports enthusiasts.
Like Sandbanks, Shore Road Beach has fine golden sands and clean, safe water. Sun seekers can lounge on the beach, whereas those who need to get in or on the water can hire equipment nearby. There is also a dedicated launch zone at Shore Road for kitesurfers and windsurfers.
Candford Cliffs Beach is a more tranquil beach, but has volleyball nets and football posts for those who want to have fun in the sun. The steep sandy cliff face is a haven for wildlife and the quaint wooden beach huts along the chine date back to 1920.
