Swanage is a small seaside town at the foot of the Purbeck Hills on the eastern end of the Purbeck peninsular in the county of Dorset in the UK. At the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Swanage is blessed with a sheltered bay and is a haven for UK divers.
With slipways for launching boats, a renovated Victorian pier (complete with dive shop and dive school), charter boats and a multitude of varied local dive sites, Swanage offers everything for an enjoyable dive trip.
Swanage and the surrounding area also offers plenty for the non-diver to keep them entertained too. From the working steam railway to the nearby ape rescue centre at Monkey World there's plenty to see and do. But if a quiet sit in the sun is your cup of tea, Swanage boasts an award winning Blue Flag status beach.
