Mudeford Sandbank is a sandy beach adjoining Hengistbury Head with picturesque views of Christchurch Harbour.

Local info: The beach is well know for its 346 beach huts. Unlike the normal beach hut, the Mudeford ones have residential status and the owners can stay overnight from February  to November. They’re also probably the most expensive fetching prices of over £100,000.
