Once the second largest natural harbour in the World. It was behind Sydney, Australia until the Sydney Opera House was built and land was reclaimed from the sea. That loss of water put Poole where it belongs on top.
Now you can wander around the harbour and take in the view from the Park or the road around he eastern side. There is the Quay Side where you can enjoy wonderful fish and chips whilst you watch the harbour at work or the ferry as it leaves. If solitude is what you seek then cross to the western shores and walk around the heathland and the Country Park.
For the sailor or fisherman your choices are endless and only require an input from you. If you like to see the unusual then cross to Brownsea Island and spot the Red Squirrel.

When I was young we used to stand at this point and look across at the Gas Works and the old Electricity Building. Both of these two were demolished to make way for a smaller unit. There were fond memories of swimming in warmer water produced by the electricity outflow pipes. It probably was un-healthy, but there we are.
The Harbour at Shoreham was always a good place to fish and sail in the sheltered waters.At times we would fish in the harbour basin if we could get away without being caught.
In the distance is Brighton and Hove. Playgrounds for the rich and famous ever since the Prince Regent built the Brighton Pavilion and put the fishing village of Brigthelmstone on the map.
The White Cliffs Of England

Everything we expect from the South Coast of England. Those wonderful white cliffs with the tough grass on top. A slight haze with the yacht setting sail for distant lands and the Sea-Gulls calling from above.
