Studland Beach & Nature Reserve has three miles of beaches (Shell Bay, Knoll Beach, Middle Beach and South Beach) are owned by the National Trust. Wide sandy beaches great for swimming, watersports and diving. Water quality is good.
The beauty of Studland is its vast shoreline and varied landscape. The most popular stretch is that near to Knoll Beach Cafe, but if you take a little effort and move away from this piece you get more space and better scenery.
The heathland behind the beach is a haven for many wild flowers and rare birds and native wildlife and is a designated National Nature Reserve. Sand dunes and woodlands can be explored via a signposted National Trust trail and there is a woodland nature trail. Studland Study Centre at Knoll car park is open for pre-bookable events and visits all year round.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Studland Bay Beach.
