One of the world’s largest natural harbours and one of the most beautiful parts of the British Isles. Host to many conflicting interests – commercial, recreational, military and environmental and also an internationally important area for nature conservation, most of the foreshore is designated a SPA (Special Protection Area) under the European Habitats Directive and sites around the Harbour are also designated as areas of outstanding natural beauty whilst the southern shores have Heritage Coast status. Sharing the navigation channels with sightseeing vessels and leisure craft of all types are cross-Channel freight and passenger ro/ro ferries along with conventional bulk cargo vessels utilising the port. The commercial Port covers 60 acres and, in recent years, has expanded with the increases in continental traffic. Against strong competition for continental traffic between the south coast ports, Poole Harbour Commissioners maintain Poole as a prosperous, medium-sized port well
