    I'm a local to the Dorset area, and I can safely say without a doubt that you will get no better beach here then Sandbanks - it is my favourite beach in the region and you can get a ferry across from there to some of our other nice beaches such as Shell Bay . Bournemouth is good, but i prefer Sandbanks as it can get extremely busy at Bournemouth in peak season . Boscombe is also a lovely beach I'd also recommend Swanage. It's lovely there, but it's quite a way from any major town.
    This.
    I used to go to Shell Bay all the time when I was little - reminds me of childhood You have to get there early though cos it gets very busy and be careful you don't go too far round the corner into the nudist beach!

    Also there is a place called Naish beach - look up Hoburne Naish, that is a nice sandy beach, but you have to be careful as on the cliffs there is clay and you can get stuck, but the actual beach is lovely! Again gets very busy in the summer holidays though!

    Probably the south :dontknow:

    The UK isnt particularly well known for good beaches...
    You have got to be kidding me!

    Most of Scotland, Wales and the south west are surrounded by beautiful coast and beaches, lots round the rest of the UK too. There are plenty in designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Miles and miles and miles of sand.

    Weather, no, but beaches, we got 'em!

    Wondering what your idea of a good beach is? :confused:
