"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Poole - Sandbanks Peninsular Beach

A family friendly beach that slowly and gradually slopes away, ensuring it is safe for even the smallest of children. The fine golden sand and excellent array of facilities make it very popular in the summer months. Access for the disabled is very good and special sand wheelchairs are available. A wide selection of activities is on offer including, crazy golf/putting, beach shop, and a range of watersports including windsurfing, sailing and paddle boats. Seafront cafe and other food outlets are situated along the promenade. A marked swim zone and a lost children patrol add to the safety of the beach. Lifeguards are on duty between May and September.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
