Sandbanks

Over the years, Sandbanks has increasingly built a reputation for its wealth of high-end properties and restaurants. Money aside, Sandbanks is a massively popular destination for visitors thanks to its award winning beach, winning the BlueFlag award more times than any other beach in the UK.

A relaxing day at one of the UK’s most beautiful beaches is one option, but there’s more. Explore the coast on a ferry trip, discover the local area on a mountain bike, challenge yourself at Sandbanks Watersports Academy, treat yourself to a fishing trip, take on your family and friends at crazy golf or watch the kids let off some steam in the children’s play area… There’s so much to offer.

All of this could be rounded off perfectly at the finest of local restaurants, where you’re sure to find some exquisite food and drink.
