What can you say about this place! It has to be one of the best beaches in the UK!

Ammar A.

Great clean beach with lovely golden sands.

Sean H.

Beautiful family hang out spot. Clean, well kept and not crowded. Perfect for water sports, boats, kayaks and yatches. It was nice to see some cruise liners.

Dee A.

Clean, convenient, good range of facilities.

Paul D.

I love to walk all along the beach towards the chain ferry and over the sand dunes.

Rhonda W.

In my opinion Sandbanks beach is the best I’ve ever been to. Clean soft sand, clear blue sea and plenty of things to do. Places to buy food and drinks, shops for beach supplies, clean well looked after toilets.
