Golden sands and sparkling waters

Winner of the Blue Flag award for more than 30 years (that’s more than any other beach in the country, we’ll have you know!) and one of the most exclusive areas in the world, it’s no wonder that Sandbanks is considered one of Britain’s best-loved beaches. 


The Sandbanks Peninsula is a little more than a kilometre square and is located at the mouth of Poole Harbour on the English Channel. Dubbed Britain’s Palm Beach, it’s the perfect place for a seaside break all year around. 


Things to do

Sandbanks truly shines in the summer months when you can enjoy a dip in the sparkling clear waters and relax on the fine golden sand beach - but with so many exciting activities on offer, spectacular Sandbanks is a winner all year round. 


Sandbanks is home to more watersports than any other UK resorts, so adrenaline junkies and adventurers alike will love it here. But rest assured, it isn’t just about beach life here! Sandbanks also boasts a number of world-class restaurants, cosy pubs and stylish bars, as well as plenty of cultural charm.


Soak up the history of the region and even enjoy a spot of crabbing in nearby Poole’s historic quayside, or you could visit the beautiful old town with its rich history, interesting buildings and beautiful museums. Alternatively, if you’ve got kids to keep entertained, there are plenty and parks, playgrounds, and even crazy golf!


Like to get outside in nature? Then you’re going to love it here: with more than 500 hectares of heathland, there are also unbeatable opportunities to get out and about and see some native wildlife. You could even take a harbour cruise to the National Trust’s Brownsea Island for idyllic wooded walks as you look out for teeming birdlife, Sika deer and famous red squirrels.
