Looking to soak up the sun on a fabulous sandy beach, or enjoy an invigorating swim with a fantastic view? You are spoilt for choice.
Swanage beach is one of the main attractions of the town and backed by a promenade lined with amusements and attractions. You can hire a deck chair, pedalo, kayak or sun bed or enjoy a drink or ice cream. Sit back and relax.
With four miles of golden, sandy beaches and gently sloping waters, nearby Studland Beach offers views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. To escape the crowds, venture into the heathland nature reserve behind the beach - in summer the heather forms a purple haze and you might be lucky enough to spot one of our six British reptiles - they all live here!
