About Poole

Poole has a stunning natural harbour, the world's second largest after Sydney, and is famed for its magnificent beaches. Its three miles of golden sands from Sandbanks to Canford Cliffs are some of the finest in Britain. They have held blue flags since 1989, and are pristine, leading to its nickname as the St. Tropez of the South coast.

The town of Poole centres round the bustling old Quay, where you can find lovely restaurants and stylish bars, with fantastic views over the harbour. From the harbour, you can take a cruise boat around the port or a ferry to the National Trust's Brownsea Island, with its peaceful walks and wide variety of wildlife.
