Christchurch - Mudeford Quay Beach

Christchurch, Dorset

Situated at the entrance to Christchurch harbour, this is the departure point for ferries to Mudeford Sand Bank beaches. There is a small stretch of shingle the site not generally considered suitable for bathing or watersports because of its proximity to the fast flowing "Run" and the main harbour channel.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Christchurch (Entrance)) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
