Activities & Days Out, Beaches & Coastline, Days Out in Dorset, Hampshire & Wiltshire

This is a bit more of a locals beach, (its where we go) and so it is a little quieter in the holidays.

There’s an ice cream kiosk, parking close to the beach and toilets. There’s also a great little company called Shaka Surf that offer surf lessons, paddle board hire and either hourly or daily hire of equipment.

They are usually at the beach during the summer holidays. I have used this company several times whilst organising both school events and my sons birthdays.

BCP council have launched an app for you to check how busy the beaches are before you head out. Download it for free here.
