Known as the gateway to the Purbecks because of its ferry link to the idyllic Studland shore, Sandbanks is a sandy peninsula connected to the mainland by an isthmian road. Home of the Royal Motor Yacht Club, celebrities frequent this salubrious three-mile stretch of golden sand with stunning views, up-market bars, beach shops and restaurants. Inland there is beautiful farmland and Corfe Castle nearby. Surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, Sandbanks is perfect for a family break. The beach is at the entrance to Poole’s magnificent natural harbour and patrolled by the Poole lifeguards. The beach has won several awards for cleanliness and top class facilities such as windsurfing, sailing, biking and boating.
