Highcliffe is situated to the east of the historic town of Christchurch and the resort town of Bournemouth, and to the west of Barton on Sea and New Milton. The New Forest National Park is to the north. The towns position on the dorset coast gives it milder winters than inland areas, and less rainfall than locations further west. This helped establish the town as a popular health and leisure resort during the late Victorian and early Edwardian eras, something that continues to the present date.
The town is also home to the Grade 1 listed Highcliffe Castle, built between 1831 & 1835, which is described as "the most important remaining example of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture".
