After dinner, we would go for a walk along this amazing stretch of beach. It is peaceful and refreshing after a busy day.

Nice and quiet, reasonably shallow water. There’s not a lot else to do there but that’s part of why we like it as it’s so much quieter than Bournemouth.

I don't think so. To be sure you could check with Christchurch council who is the local authority for Highcliffe.
