Canford Cliffs Beach
It goes without saying we love our beaches, and we all have a responsibility to respect our town, our award-winning seafront, gardens and open spaces - so whilst you’re here please respect, protect and enjoy the resort.
If you do visit the beach and it’s too busy, then why not find another quieter area of beach – there’s plenty of seafront to choose from!
