Canford Cliffs Beach

A hidden gem

Canford Cliffs beach is between Branksome Chine and Flaghead Chine in Poole.

It's quieter than neighbouring Sandbanks and Branksome Chine as less well known, so on busy days you're more likely to find a patch of golden sand for yourself.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach May to September.

There is a small parade of high-end shops and restaurants near Canford Cliffs beach which are very close on Raven Road.

Did you know
Canford Cliffs has the area's oldest beach huts, some dating back to 1927.
