My sister and I visited on a cold, windy but sunny day on a weekend break in Poole to go back to our happy memories of childhood Sundays here. A superb beach, just as we remembered. No dislikes.

A lovely beach which, apart from the inevitable National Trust Cafe, is still uncommercialised. Of course, at almost any time of year, you'll find some nudity in evidence though.

Beautiful area, maintained by the National Trust. Free cap parking for NT members. Lovely sand and good toilet and cafe facilities.

Just marvellous with good local amenities at NT Centre and local pub which brews own beer. Allow enough time to walk along beach from ferry to Old Harry.

I recently spent around 2 hours walking along Studlands Beach as it goes on for miles! We stopped off in a dog friendly cafe that had great food along the way too. Fabulous views and beautiful clean sand.

We nearly always go to the "Middle" beach. National Trust car park (free for members). Short walk down to the beach. Always clean. Read about smuggling in the old coast guard lookout in the car park. At visit in march needed to wrap up, but still fantastic.

Great to use the old chain link ferry to get to Studland. Park by the corner shop in Studland walk down the lane and take the footpath to Old Harry Rocks. Wonderful views and a pleasanr walk.

Stunning beaches. Had a lovely stroll and enjoyed the views, scenery and stunning sand. Great place to collect stones or shells, let the kids play or enjoy company. I can imagine it would be ram packed in the summer though !

There are various car parks to choose from and we parked at Middle Beach and enjoyed a bracing walk along the coast. Wonderful views! The NT cafe is excellent and allows dogs inside (a big bonus when weather is inclement). Clean modern toilets and tasty food make this an excellent rest stop.
