Pier Beach (Swanage)
This little sand and shingle beach lies just west of the town, on the way to the pier. Whilst not quite of the same standard as Swanage main beach's golden sands the beach here is a lovely spot to relax and watch life go by.
With clear, clean water and in its sheltered location the beach here is a great place for a spot of snorkelling. It is also popular with anglers, with the pier being well known for bass.
