The sandy beach is one of the main attractions of the town. The waters are clean, and the beach has won many European Blue Flag Awards, as well as the Encams Quality Coast Award. Swanage beach has a well earned reputation for being a good place to soak up the sun and play in the sand and sea.
Deck chairs are available for hire, as are pedaloes, kayaks and sun beds. The beach runs the length of the town and is backed by a promenade lined with amusements and attractions. It is found on the South West Coast Path.
Diver training and excursions run regularly from Swanage. Other water sports include sailing, water-skiing and wind surfing.
