Poole Beaches & Quay

Topic Progress:

With 3 miles of golden sands, a glorious coastline and the largest natural harbour in Europe, Poole is a superb destination with sights reminiscent of Sydney.

A haven for sailors, wildlife and the latest water sports craze, Poole boasts Britain’s best beach – Sandbanks, awarded more Blue Flags than any other UK resort and is also the gateway to the world heritage Jurassic Coast.

There are 6 beaches in Poole each with their own characteristics.  Five of the beaches are along the sweep of Poole Bay that leads to Bournemouth:

  • Sandbanks
  • Shore Road
  • Canford Cliffs
  • Branksome Chine
  • Branksome Dene Chine

There is also a small beach on the inner harbour at Hamworthy Park.
