“Pick your Sunseeker.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We like Poole Quay but you need a fine day. Walk along the harbour and admire the luxury yachts, boat trips to Brownsea Island and beyond, fish+chips and ice creams. A typical English sea side port.

“Lots to do & see & bars to enjoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

If you like boats you will see boats. Very pleasant & clean lots to do and see. Easy boat trip to brownsea island shops and the usual seaside amenities. This is not Blackpool more sedate and peaceful, relaxing.

“Lovely place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

We spent the day in Poole (had not been there since the 60`s) Took a boat trip to Swanage which I highly recommend. Very pleasant time just walking round the harbour, visiting the museum which is free, and a cup of tea in Poole Pottery.

“Natural Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

everything for a holiday Fantastic blue flag beaches, good fishing and a massive safe harbour for learning to sail or board sailing or just messing about in boats great for kids the islands are lovely 5 min ones and Brownsea is well worth a visit. Take a boat ride from Poole Quay up the Wareham river for a pub meal and see the extent of the biggest natural harbour in the world.The views of Dorset are terrific Sandbanks Corfe Castle and the view from the hill near Purbeck Golf Club back over the harbour is stunning I grew up here but I can`t help coming back time and time again . No wonder sandbanks attracts the rich and famous Yachtsmen from all over the world.It makes very proud to be from this area. Must Visit!!!!!!
