What is Sandbanks best known for?

Sandbanks is now a world-famous location on the South Coast of England. From humble beginnings as literally just deserted sand dunes that jutted out in to Poole Harbour to the fourth most expensive place to live in the world. The history of Sandbanks is one of a miraculous transformation since the 1950’s. In such a relatively short time, it is now home to some of the most extaordinary homes, yachting facilities and growing international recognition as the best place for watersports in the UK.

On one side of the peninsula is Poole Harbour, with extraordinary scenery and views across the bay to Brownsea Island and beyond to the rolling hills of the Isle of Purbeck. On the other side is the English Channel, Blue Flag award winning waters and soft golden sandy beaches stretching all the way to Bournemouth, Christchurch and beyond to Hengistbury Head.

Because of the desirability of the area, property prices now stand at an all time high, with the most expensive ever sold recently selling for £10 Million (the former home of Football coach and manager Harry Redknapp). It also now boasts some of the most unique architecture combining ultra modern living accomodation with the more traditional architecture of the 1920’s still in existence.
