On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Swanage to South Haven Point

As you walk through open grassland and woodland around Studland, keep a look out for bottlenose dolphins and take time to enjoy the beautiful seasonal wildflowers and butterflies and the spectacular views of the chalk stacks of Old Harry. Three miles of sandy beaches running all the way to South Haven Point offer plenty of opportunities to rest and take in the views across Poole Bay to Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight. Note the last ½ mile of beach is popular with naturists. if you wish to avoid seeing naked people, either come in chilly weather, or walk inland and follow the coast road Just before the ferry to Sandbanks a steel sculpture marks the end of your journey and the end of the South West Coast Path.
