Dorset waters voted as a dream kayak location


9:53am 16th March 2013

Are you a fan of being out on Dorset's waters...?

If so good news because our Coastline has just been named one of the Top Ten Dream Kayak Locations in the UK.

The Jurassic Coast faced competition from 500 entrants. The rest of the top ten consisted of two Cumbrian locations, three Scottish locations, two Cornish spots, Devon and Pembrokeshire.

The locations were voted in by the public as part of a competition run by online Kayak magazine, Sitons.

Tez Plavenieks, one of the faces behind Sitons, said; "The polled results make for interesting reading. The obligatory far-flung locations do indeed make the cut but it seems many still prefer the idea of paddling closer to home. Watersports have always played a big part in boosting UK tourism, especially in coastal areas through the summer."
