It is a stunning location to explore with wonderful views together with access to some stunning countryside, woodland, heaths, farmland and beaches. It is rich in wildlife and has attractive towns and villages set in some of the best walking areas in South West England.

They have marked routes arund the Harbour includig the areas of Sandbanks, Studland, Norden, Wareham, Sandford, Turlin Moor, and Poole Quay.
