A beautiful nature reserve on the Headland at the West end of the prom (about 4 miles). There’s a cafe by the car park and you can either walk, bike or take the land train to Mudeford Sandspit with views across Christchurch harbour and to the sea.

Food scene

A relaxed restaurant with a wood fired oven serving fresh fish, European dishes and with a 1920s cocktail bar upstairs to retire to. Our favourite place.

Inventive eco-focused small plates dishes (not Spanish-style tapas). Food is as local as possible, often brought in by cargo bike from a nearby farm. Has just won a Michelin Green Star (2022).

A chippy that also does amazing specials like Steak Chimichurri, pulled pork burgers and if you’re lucky maybe some smoked brisket or Persian lamb. All their food is home made from scratch and we especially love the fresh salads & slaws they make. Great for a sunset dinner on the beach.
