Plenty of families doing walks or just chatting, or crabbing with the kids (local tackle for sale). Nice atmosphere.

There is no more pleasurable way of spending a hour in this life than an hour spent crabbing with your grandchildren on Mudeford Quay.

Visited several times over our holiday stay in Mudeford. Walked along the shore front. Also went crab catching which is pretty addictive. Popular spot for walkers, joggers, dogs and children.

Sorry I dont have any but I think either the local council or a local estate agent maybe worth a try. Good luck
