Location - Studland

A glorious slice of natural coastline in Purbeck featuring a four-mile stretch of golden, sandy beach, with gently shelving bathing waters and views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight.

The beaches at Studland are called Shell Bay, Knoll Beach, Middle Beach and South Beach. All are owned by the National Trust.

It is ideal for water sports and includes the most popular naturist beach in Britain. The heathland behind the beach is a haven for native wildlife and features all six British reptiles.

Designated trails through the sand dunes and woodlands allows for exploration and spotting of deer, insects and bird life as well as a wealth of wild flowers.
