There was not much to do here apart from the beach. It was a beautiful place, but not worth paying to go on a chain-ferry for.
Studland beach is sandy, safe and has shallow sea with no currents and a gentle tide so is safe for bathing The nature reserve behind, amongst the dunes, makes a good walk and there's a lagoon wit some sea birds, though it can be sparsely populated Accessible by car, on foot or by bike,it's great for family exploring

Knowle Beach is easier for access for both families and people with disabilities and is the main big beach. Access to Middle Beach is down steps from the top of the... More
I just love some of the stupid reviews on here whining about how the UK is over the top with health and safety. Ever been to Australia? Besides,the beach is lovely and in my opinion is wayyyy ahead of many European beaches I've seen (especially those on the bloomin awful French Riviera)
