Guide to

Sandbanks is known for its award-winning stretch of golden sandy beaches and the most expensive coastal real estate in the world. Home to the largest natural harbour in Europe, people flock to the area from far and wide to enjoy the lifestyle and magnificent scenery.


As you approach Sandbanks on the brow of Evening Hill, you are immediately struck by the views across the harbour reaching Brownsea Island and Purbeck Hills. The Luscombe Valley Nature Reserve lies just beyond here and is a sanctuary of lush woodland, leading to Sandbanks itself.


The famous Rick Stein restaurant sits at the start of the renowned peninsula, after which you begin passing an array of luxury beachfront apartments and extraordinary homes. The chain ferry is the gateway to Studland, Swanage and Corfe, a mere 500 metre journey across the water.
