We wanted somewhere to take our friends from New Zealand, and on a sunny day, there are not too many better places. You can go for a good walk, there is the Noisy Lobster for a meal, or the attached fish and chip shop. There...More

We had a walk along this beach and enjoyed our visit while at Highcliffe Castle. We had no idea such a fantastic beach existed in the UK and it was so unspoilt and vast that we would certainly come here again and again.
