Poole Harbour

..a natural harbour…

Sailing Holidays in the UK  – Sailing to Poole Harbour

Being the second-largest natural harbour in the world, Poole offers endless possibilities for sailing enthusiasts. Whether you are after a lively night on the quay or a quiet night at anchor, you are bound to find the perfect spot.

The harbour attracts 12,000 visiting boats a year. It has been dredged to accommodate cross Channel ferries and coastal freighters.

Either side of Poole Harbour entrance is two very different stretches of beach.

To the west, Studland Bay is pretty and fringed by sand dunes.

To the east of the harbour entrance, multi million-pound properties line Sandbanks beach, becoming high rise apartments all the way to Bournemouth.

Poole Quay is the hub of the town. The front is lined with pubs, bars, restaurants and shops and in the summer is heaving with tourists.
