Beach Nature / Park
Follow winding pathways carved by rivers that twist and turn under the forest canopies above and lead to Blue Flag-designated beaches at Branksome Chine. The wide, soft-sand beach features a gradual slope into the English Channel that makes it ideal for all swimming levels. Windsurfing is popular here, and the area supports a few small shops and offers beach huts and beach wheelchairs for rent. The beach is also home to a nice restaurant that's known for being a favorite among celebrities. You'll also find lifeguards, restrooms and barbeque pits here.

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
