Nice place, small fishing town, not far from Christchurch, you can buy fresh fish from stalls, but does get very crowded.

What an absolutely beautiful beach. We parked up and walked round the quay and along the beach for a few hours, and despite the November chill it was completely stunning, beautifully clean and we will most definitely return. Massive thumbs up!!!!!

We stayed at the Water Burrow, most amazing fishermans cottage on a working fishermans quay. With the Haven pub and cafe being a few yards away you could not pick a better place to chill out and watch the world go by. the cottage had everything you could possibly want and more.
