Near the Coast

Dorset is famous for its coastline much of which is designated part of the Jurassic Coast running from Old Harry Rocks in Dorset to Orcombe Point in East Devon.

 

However, closer to home are the stunning beaches of Bournemouth and Poole most of which are beautifully sandy and very family friendly.  Many of the beaches also welcome dogs. www.icoast.co.uk

The beaches to the west of the coast are open to the public, and you will find car parking and refreshment facilities in the Durdle Door Holiday Park.
