About

COVID-19 Poole

Under these unprecedented circumstances, please adhere to current government guidelines.

If you do visit for a beach walk, why not use the opportunity to explore other parts of the seafront – there’s plenty to choose from.  The BCP Beach Check app – free to download for any Apple or Android device, was originally created to monitor the busy beaches but for the winter time it’s the perfect app for finding another beauty spot.
