Great Beaches and nice to see

Amazing to see this, know as the Jurassic coast. Great beaches. Would have loved more time here. Only a short drive from Poole Town.

This is a wonderful bean which is extremely safe for all ages. Water sports available for hire. Excellent car parking which is free for National Trust members. The beach is safe for children with gently sloping sand into the sea. Toilets are available. There is also a National Trust shop and cafe. I have mixed views on the cafe with... More

Just the best seaside experience ever. Whilst you are there check out The Pig on the Beach for amazing locally produced food.

This beach is different from the rest in its locality, it doesn't get as crowded for a start, long may it stay that way! Great walks and views are also to be had. Great place for beach games. Best in morning and evening.

stunning bit of england, only spoilt by the lack of car parking. people ram cars all along road ways and that annoys me. It would not be too difficult for council to provide 'off road parking'.

Really lovely stretch of white sandy coastline, big enough for many people to have their own space without it feeling cramped.

My friend and I strolled along the foreshore of Knoll Beach - on Studland bay - in July this year (2015). We weren't expecting the naturist beach, but it seemed to be perfectly alright to walk along at the sea's edge fully clothed. There was a friendly atmosphere on this stretch of beach - which was not overcrowded - and... More

If you're in to photography, this is the place to get some great shots. Old Harry always looks amazing no matter what the weather. Great walks here too with a couple of pubs on the way.

A brilliant place to visit, especially for Trust members. The cafe is pretty good, but then it needs to be because BBQs / stoves etc are not allowed due to fire precautions.
