A must do when visiting Poole, speaks for itself. Park is easy, but not free and loads of places to eat drink and get an ice cream.

For the location this is just an average beach, extremely windy and sand stinging the skin! Many beach huts which made interesting viewing, just wondered up and down coast, nothing special, quite chavvy!!

Yes, but as always, take along a pooper-scooper, and you'll be fine. There are bins alongside the main drag into the place to dispose of this waste.
