Coming from Swanage, you’ll actually reach the running for South Beach car park before you get to the main and most popular Knoll Beach. But just because it’s smaller and less well-known, it doesn’t make South Beach any less worthy of a day out.
With its safe, shallow water and slightly more rugged feel, South Beach feels like a real natural haven away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Manor Road, Swanage BH19 3AU
