Walking Along the Beach
what a nice way to train
Distance between them is 6.8 miles
Thought to be Poole's number one beach, Sandbanks is the winner of more blue flag awards than any other British beach. Situated just four miles from Poole centre on the Sandbanks Peninsula the beach, a five kilometre stretch of golden sand, is a bustling haven for swimmers, children and water sports enthusiasts alike.
On the other side of Henigstbury Head is Southbourne, home to a part-sand, part-shingle beach popular with local families and surfers. The beach is large, safe and quiet with regular bus and train services from Boscombe and easy access to cliff paths.
The distance of a return trip is 13.6 miles, this is only half the distance of the Three Peaks Challenge but what a place to start training on long distance walking.!!
