Get Out in Nature!

When visiting any new area for the first time it’s easy to get lost in where to go. Sometimes you need an insiders help to point you in the right direction.

I will be posting a series of blogs highlighting some ‘must visits’ depending on what you’re looking for. From bars, restaurants and water sport activities. We will have the list made easy, so you can make the most of your trip.

This blog is focused on all things nature. For Bournemouth is not only a beautiful coastal town in itself, but it’s also surrounded by some true natural wonders. From the new forest, Europes largest natural harbour and many more golden sand beaches.

Here are my top picks!

Durdle Door

This natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast is one of Dorset’s most beautiful  natural landmarks. Less than an hour drive away.

New Forest

A national park filled with idyllic glades, open moors, and cliff top walks. Discover wildlife, woodlands & dramatic coastline.

Christchurch Harbour

Christchurch Harbour is a natural harbour in Dorset. It was formed about 7000 years ago when the sea level rose at the end of the Ice Age.

Hengistbury Head

Hengistbury Head is a scenic headland and home to over 500 plant species, 300 types of birds, a superb variety of insects, reptiles and small mammals.

Sandbanks, Poole

The naturally beautiful Sandbanks Peninsula forms part of Poole Harbour, Europe’s largest natural harbour, second only in the world to Sydney!
