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.
