Hengistbury Head: beach markers and waves
Hengistbury Head: beach markers and waves
The short southeast-facing section of beach at the headland, marking the meeting point between Poole Bay and Christchurch Bay, comprises four or five short breakwaters in fairly quick succession. They comprise boulders rather haphazardly placed, and the resultant waves can be quite spectacular as a result.
