Sandbanks Beach

Sandbanks Beach

Thought to be Poole's number one beach, Sandbanks is the winner of more blue flag awards than any other British beach. Situated just four miles from Poole centre on the Sandbanks Peninsula the beach, a five kilometre stretch of golden sand, is a bustling haven for swimmers, children and water sports enthusiasts alike.

The beach is family-friendly, with a safe swimming zone, children's amusements, crazy golf, a designated area for barbecues and a train running up and down the promenade. Pedalos and catamarans are available for hire as are volleyball posts and nets, and the beach is home to the annual Premier Sandbanks Beach Volleyball Classic, which attracts a host of local and international players.
