A few weeks back on a windy Saturday afternoon we went to Ringstead Bay. It was one of the beaches in the National Trust book and another Dorset beach to go and visit.
Ringstead Bay is a pebble beach which I’m not normally the biggest fan of as we are so used to sandy beaches but it made a nice change. Hearing the pebbles rush in and out with the waves is such a relaxing sound. I was absolutely stunned as we walked round the corner from the car park the views are amazing.
The beach you arrive on is fully pebbled which gave Amelia a chance to have serious choice over what stones she collected and the next beach down is mostly shingles and sand with the views of the white chalk cliffs of White Nothe which we wanted to walk to but it was a little far for Amelia so that’s definitely something for another day!
It was super windy so we were able to get Amelia’s kite flying with no problems and let her have a go at flying it which she loved! I would definitely recommend getting a little kite this was off eBay and was under £10 it’s fab for days like this and just with an extra piece of string tied on it Amelia can hold onto it safely and I can hold it at the same time so it doesn’t fly off!
This was a real hidden gem and I’m so pleased we went to find it. It’s somewhere my parents hadn’t been before after years of living down here so I was really happy to take them to a new place, especially somewhere as stunning as Ringstead Bay.
I’m still really hoping to visit every beach in Dorset. Last year I challenged us to do it during the Summer but it was a bit unprepared and slightly ambitious. I think now we’ve got our National Trust Membership and Amelia’s that bit older it’s a bit more likely to happen.
So hopefully you’ll be seeing even more beach spam (as if I don’t do it enough) and to share some more of Dorset’s beaches with you, a blessed part of the country to live in!
