    Sandbanks – 6 Quirky Facts

    1. Nothing But Sand
      Sandbanks is a relatively recent addition to the British coastline, created solely by sand caused by erosion and washed along from Poole Bay. In the 17th century it was little recorded and certainly not inhabited. A few shelters were erected by fishermen but it wasn’t until 1865 that a lifeboat station became the first proper structure to be built. In 1976 it was followed by a row of coastguards’ cottages, that still exist. In 1880 the Haven Hotel opened its doors, although guests had to cross the beach to reach it, then the 1930’s saw the arrival of ‘old money’ when aristocratic members of the Royal Motor Yacht Club started building party bungalows and villas.
    2. Non-Conformists
      In 1906 the minutes of Poole Council stated, “The Bohemianism of the several residents of Sandbanks is noted.” following newspaper reports that, “yet again the dwellers of Sandbanks are said to be outside the pale of the law” as they continued to happily ignore council laws and regulations. It was this spirit of hedonism that continued into the roaring 20s and 30s.
    3. Size Isn’t Everything
      Sandbanks only covers 1 km² or 0.39 square miles. When the playboys first moved in, 13 acres of the island changed hands for £13 (today you’d struggle to rent a deckchair for that!). In total there are now just over 800 homes on Sandbanks.
    4. A Bit Blue
      No, not down in the dumps or even a bit saucy, we’re referring to the stunning beaches that have had continuous Blue Flag status since 1987.
    5. ‘ow much?!?
      It’s a well noted fact that Sandbanks is one of the most expensive property hotspots in the world but for a gauge of just how fast prices can move, in 2005 an ‘average bungalow’ changed hands for a cool £3,00,000, 12 months later the same property went back on the market having remained empty and completely untouched. It sold for £4,000,000. In 2009 a 14,990 ft² empty plot had an asking price of £13.5 million.
    6. King of the Jungle
      Sandbanks’ most famous resident is former football manager and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here winner Harry Redknapp, there are other former footballers present including Jamie Redknapp, Tony Pulis, Graeme Souness and celebrity antiques dealer Celia Sawyer.

    About Sandbanks

    One of the most sought-after locations in the UK, Sandbanks really does deliver on beachside living. Stunning views, impressive houses, waterfront properties, it’s easy to see why residents fall in love with all Sandbanks has to offer. It also has something of a ‘boho’ reputation and has been drawing party lovers and independent thinkers since the roaring 20s, when the ‘old money’ and gentrified playboys first set their launches in the water.


    It really is all about the water, windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding, jet skis, launches, pleasure craft, there is so much to dive into. The place to meet is the Yacht Club, or Poole Harbour’s marina is just a short distance. Bournemouth and Poole both offer good shopping, theatres, cinemas and all kinds of entertainment. Plus there is the nearby UNESCO Jurassic Coast to explore.


    The chain ferry service is the primary route, slashing the time it takes to get to Poole and Swanage from 25 to just 4 minutes. You can be in the centre of Bournemouth in 17 minutes by car, and the City’s main train station runs direct services to London. Bournemouth also has an international airport.
