Family holidays by the sea are where dreams are made!

At the Sandbanks Hotel you couldn’t get closer to the beach – it’s only a few steps from our terrace. And not just any beach… 7 miles of Blue Flag award-winning golden sands greeted with clear blue sea. Or, if you prefer a warmer dip – jump in to our heated indoor pool.

Perfect for the kids to enjoy and Mum and Dad to relax!

Kids love the beach

For children the beach is possibly the greatest playground from building sandcastles, digging holes, collecting sea shells or just splashing and playing in the surf.

Plus, our 10m indoor heated pool offers a shallow child friendly dip.



Beachy Teens

For older children the beach is a complete escape from routine and a true reminder of what nature really has to offer.

With the fresh sea air in their lungs you’ll be surprised to see your teenager with a new lust for life! Running around happily playing beach games, posing for fun seaside pictures, reading books and merrily chatting whilst watching the sea gently lap at their toes.
