Poole in Dorset has long been a popular tourist spot for Brits to go during the summer months with a whole host of beautiful beaches.

With Dorset offering both coast and countryside, there are plenty of things to see and do in the area which attracts thousands of tourists each year.

But there’s one area in particular that can be hard to visit during peak summer months with hotels and Airbnbs booked out for weeks in advance.

Sandbanks, which measures just one square kilometre, is a peninsula formed as the tide carried sand along the shoreline.

Now, the prestigious location is a playground in the sun for the wealthy with multi-million-pound mansions host to celebrities and billionaires from across the world.

Sandbanks received a Traveller’s Choice Award on TripAdvisor thanks to its reviews and ratings collected from users over the last year.

Earlier this year, the beach received a Blue Flag accolate which recognises beaches that meet standards for safety, cleanliness and environmental awareness for the 36th time.

The popular location is also renowned for offering both novices and experience watersports enthusiasts a chance to play in the water with numerous activities.

Whether you want to surf, paddleboard or charter a yacht, there’s plenty of options for those visiting the stunning location.

But, for those looking for a more laid back option, Poole – located in Bournemouth – has plenty of other great spots to visit that are considerably cheaper than its richer counterpart.

Poole has been a family favourite for decades, offering a range of affordable accomodation and soft-sand beaches.

For those visiting with children, Poole also boasts a more traditional seaside feel with classic arcades and an entertainment centre complete with ten pin bowling, American pool and a waterpark.

There is also a pier to take in the evening sunset while admiring the Dorset coastline.

Poole features a traditional working Quay that is the gateway to its stunning harbour and islands, offering a great place to sit and relax and watch the boats come and go.

You can also hop on a Condor Ferry from the nearby port for a day trip to Guernsey.

Poole Harbour is also impressively named the second largest natural harbour in the world, with Sydney in Australia taking first place.

With Poole’s natural coastal setting, you will find plenty of superb beachside and waterfront takeaways, cafes, restaurants, pubs and bars – making it a great place to relax with family and friends.
