There is a car park at Hengistbury. Be aware it costs 拢1 per hour though it's free after 10pm. You can fish from the beach close to the car park but if you mean to go to the stone groyne this is still a good walk, best part of a mile.

Be even more aware that they lock the car park, and the road to the car park, after 10pm, so the parking may be free but you're in there till the next morning! Oh, and you can't get out by going off-road like you used to ...

is it good fishing there i was told about a drop off
The beach&the groyne have pretty flat bottoms(ooo err missus)i mean the seabed.There are patches of iron ore rocks on the beach underneath the lookout tower&thats the start of Christchhurch ledge which goes out towards the Needles for a couple of miles.A bit further along towards the groyne there's more extensive rougher ground.The groyne it self is fairly clean ground until you get near the end which is rougher ground but not to bad.At times the tide run around the end is very strong&it can be weedy on the ebb.Lots of wrasse&a few pollock.September the garfish can be pretty thick on the ground.There's usualy plenty of mackeral about-although at the moment they seem to be scarce.It was crap weather in July which might be the reason for that.I've seen plenty of nice sole caught halfway along the groyne casting toward the east.If the wind is blowing strong from the SW.Fishing in front of the beach huts gives plenty of shelter.I've had good plaice during the day&Bass,Sole,whiting,cod,smoothhounds at night.It can be weedy in the summer-but then again most places are weedy in the summer.Good luck!
