Sandbanks may have a reputation for flash houses and even flashier owners, but it is also a peaceful idyll with a stunning, huge, clean beach in an area that feels as though you could leave your car or front door unlocked each night without worry. Definitely not for the 'kiss me quick' crowd though!!!

What a fantastic place to live, the 4th most expensive place in the world to live and you can have a good look around for free. Beach here is fab and if you want to move down the coast just drive onto the Sandbanks Ferry

Sandbanks is on the peninsula of Poole and technically you can walk up on the road side and walk along the bay seeing boats and beautiful houses, at the top you are looking at Sandbanks Ferry, you can walk back along the beautiful sandy beach, looking at Old Harry's Rock in one direction and the Isle of Wight and Bournemouth...

We visited Sandbanks last weekend and had a wonderful day out. A beautiful, clean beach. The children throughly enjoyed the sandy beach. This is somewhere we will be visiting again

This beach is first rate. Everything, except the parking charges, are worth a visit. The sand is free from stones, the gentle incline in the water is just great for kids, life guards in the area are top notch, the water is clear and clean, the sand is lovely. Its also remarkably quiet considering what a top quality beach it... More
