Location - Shell Bay

The Shell Bay and Studland Beaches are of the finest quality with fine golden sand. The water is clean and safe, although it may sometimes be cool! The beach slowly and gradually slopes away, ensuring it is safe for even the smallest of children.

Access to the beaches can be gained via the Sandbanks Ferry, which carries cars as well as foot passengers, or by driving round the long way through Wareham to Corfe Castle and then doubling back. The Ferry gets very busy at peak periods during the summer and the quickest way across is as a foot passenger.
