Round the Island is always a good trip and one to tick off that you have done.
Other wise come down to the Juassic Coast, lots to do and see as has already been said.

Allegedly the one in Bournemouth is ok, rather than braving the wind and rain

I can see that didn't read well

The 'lads' I hang around with tend to be middle-aged city types, I still think of them as lads though.

Thanks all, some good suggestions there.

Can I ask, Bankes in Studland Bay, is there a sea taxi there, how would i get ashore with no tender? Also, do i need to worry about tides there?

Studland Bay ;- No water bus/shuttle, yes beware falling tide, if you get too close you will dry out and have a fair wait before being afloat again.

The sand slopes gently so could wade in, but tender is advisable. The banks is a good pub to eat/drink in, the beer garden has fab views of the bay.

The alternative would Swanage, you can use the pier (fee) or the small boat jetty (free) and use the numerous pubs there, or Poole Town Quay, again use the Marina (small fee) and plenty of pubs and resturants.
