Those on family beach holidays on the Isle of Purbeck tend to head straight for Swanage Beach, as its gently shelving sands earn it Blue Flag status year after year. The warm weather also enjoyed by Swanage only adds to the beach’s appeal, and the Victorian architecture give the resort a quaint seaside feel.
The beach is conveniently close to a range of cafes and shops, and it has a long association with SCUBA diving. You’ll find plenty of diving outlets nearby, and a range of other watersports on offer too. The clear waters of Swanage make its beach just the spot for sailing, wind surfing and waterskiing, so whether you're a seasoned adrenalin seeker or fancy learning something new this holiday we'd recommend this sandy beach with two thumbs up.
