We love Poole Harbour. The bustle of the harbourside, with boats of all sizes going in and out, many bars and restaurants compete with the long peaceful walks you can make through Baiter Park and beyond

All this area is magnificent. The beaches look as though they are combed every day but the harbour is just amazing. Clear water but so many vessels to look over and enjoy. Very pleasant time had there.
