Mudeford Beach

At the western end of Christchurch bay, and guarding the entrance to the harbour, is the characterful fishing village of Mudeford. From here a ferry can be taken to Mudeford Sandbanks, a unique spit that joins the village to Hengistbury Head, jutting out into the English Channel between Bournemouth and Christchurch.

Alternatively a train from the Hengistbury Head car park will deliver you to this popular sandy beach where the wooden huts, of which there are 350, can fetch up to £100 000 apiece on the rare occasion that one comes up for sale. There are toilets, a café and a shop on the sandbank.
