Ringstead is reached by a mile long bumpy toll road, which stops two hundred metres short of the beach. It may be awkward to reach but this shingle beach is worth the trek for wave sailing when it’s blowing Westerly. It’s a reef break, which is just off the beach and very tide dependant, so get some local advice before sailing the break for the first time. Great scenery in a quiet location.
