Sandbanks Car Park
The main Sandbanks Car Park has capacity for 532 cars and gives direct access to the beach. It’s ideal for families and people with a lot of beach gear as it’s only 100 meters walk on to the sand. During busy summer months and sunny days however, it’s usually full by about 10am so it pays to arrive as early as possible. There are several road signs on the way from Poole heading towards Sandbanks that indicate how many spaces are left. Read more…
Shore Road Car Park
Although there aren’t many spaces available (72 spaces in total) so you’ll have to get in early, the Shore Road car park is only a few metres from the beach and is ideal if you need to carry a lot of beach gear.
