Shell Bay is a beach of white sand backed by low dunes at the eastern end of Purbeck. A National Trust P&D car park can be found at the end of the road to the Sandbanks ferry, and free roadside parking is available for over a mile on both side of this road - but make sure you park outside of the yellow lines. Beach access from the car park is along a boardwalk. Despite its name, it's not particularly good for seashells. Due to its proximity to Poole Harbour there can be strong currents, particularly around mid-tide. Dogs are allowed but must be on leads from 1st May until 30th September.
