Swanage Maps and Orientation

(Swanage, Dorset, England, UK)




Photo of the bayfrontA charming coastal town located in South-West England, Swanage stands on the south-easterly shore of Dorset and on the eastern side of the Isle of Purbeck. Swanage is close to some of the region's finest beaches, such as those of Bournemouth, Boscombe, Sandbanks and Studland, amongst many others.

Swanage Bay faces to the east and serves as the main draw card here, being part of the world-famous Jurassic Coast. The bay itself is fronted by a sweeping expanse of sand, which appears almost endless and stretches right into the distance.
