Open sandy beach where dogs are welcome off lead all year round, adjacent to Sandbanks blue flag beach (dogs not allowed on the blue flag beaches during summer months, see entry for Poole Beaches)
Walk through from southernmost part of car park or along sea front promenade (dogs on lead on promenade). On site signs show where seasonal restrictions apply on other beachs along this shoreline. Always pick-up at this busy beach, there are dog bins on the prom.
Car park has parking charges, reduced in winter months. Cafe and seasonal kiosks, seasonal crazy golf, playground, toilets open all year round.
Promenade ends at the point where all year round off-lead dog beach begins, see entry for Branksome Dene Chine for alternative beach if surfaced promenade area needed.
