A stunning location with Britain’s best beaches and leading the way the famous Sandbanks beach. Three miles of golden sands, clean clear waters, contemporary waterside bars and restaurants.

Poole has the largest natural harbour in the world (apart from Sydney!) fringed with unspoilt woodland, countryside and coastal walks.

A bustling quay – Watch Sunseekers, yachts and fishing boats from one of many harbour side and Sandbanks restaurants and bars.
