Canford Cliffs is a natural and tranquil area of our beaches situated between Shore Road and Branksome Chine. The steep sandy cliff face provides a haven for wildlife.  Fine and golden sand, gradual sloping beach, and clean and safe water make Canford Cliffs Beach an ideal place to visit with or without children. 

The Beach Office is open from the 1st May until the 30th September and RNLI lifeguard's are on duty during July and August from 10am-6pm.

The beach can be reached from Cliff Drive via the chine or along the promenade from Shore Road and Branksome Chine.  Canford Cliffs Village offers local shops and can be accessed via the Chine (approx 800 yds).
