“Something for everyone” is a frequently used phrase but it is most appropriate when describing the areas surrounding and including Poole Harbour.

This Dorset landmark has an array of outdoor facilities from sea to land. The National Trust offers a wealth of outdoor experiences for all ages, from curry and Kayak, Paddleboard Yoga, paddle and brekkie or perhaps the outdoor theatre production or birdsong walk.

Take the Bramble Bush Bay Chain ferry from Sandbanks peninsular to Studland where you will find an array of activities for all to share. From the graceful sandy beaches leading to the Nature reserves of the National Trust, coastal walks, kayaking, sailing, all leading to the famous Old Harry Rocks and beyond. Studland being the gateway to the Isle of Purbeck and dramatic coastline of the Jurassic era.

Even in Winter there is plenty to explore. Enjoy the Knoll Beach Café at Studland with its welcoming wood burner for that cosy coffee, cake and more.

The Sandbanks peninsular has spectacular views and its beaches has facilities for all. Even to the dog wash on Sandbanks Beach Car Park.

From gourmet meals at the many restaurants to the BBQ area provided on the beach, you really will be spoilt for choice. Being a busy Port lookout for the Ferry travelling to Cherbourg or the fast catamaran going to Jersey, perhaps take a day trip, just remember to bring your passport!

Poole Harbour is one of the UK’s largest centres for sailing with yacht clubs to include; Royal Motor yacht club, Parkstone, East Dorset and Lilliput sailing club. Access to the shelter of Poole Harbour allows sailing during any tide times.
