This is an amazing beach, for families, couples or singles, there's something for everyone. Some parts of the beach do have toilets and eating area, but the nature area does not have any of these facilities, but not far to walk to get to them. The nature area is a beautiful area to explore.

Quite, great sand. Well maintained. A bit of a walk to get there, but one of the best nudist beaches in England

Lovely little beach. Looked after by the National Trust, to whom you pay your car parking charges (members park for free - join us, we don't bite ;¬{D ). In previous years we parked further up toward Poole, where the beach is wider and longer, but this time we parked at the South Beach car park (Next to the Bankes... More

After spending plenty of summers on this Beach as children it's funny that now we have children we are back here, again. You know what? this beach really is pretty good. Lovely fine sand, great for building sandcastles and digging in, a smooth slope out to sea, a gentle tide and so clean. I love that they mark out sections... More

First the only negative. I visited last weekend and again this weekend. Families with school-aged children and people working in education will be pleased to know that in this time parking has gone up 50% from £6 to £9 a day 'because of the school holidays' (we asked the question). If you want to go to the naturist part of... More

Love, love,love the beaches at Studland. But I prefer to visit on a crisp sunny day put of season to walk my dog. During the summer the crowds of tourists make the area to me "a local" one to avoid. It is also a shame that during the summer months there is no area at studland that you can walk... More

We visit every year from Burnbake Campsite and this year we even had some sun! It's a great beach for kids - we were at Knoll Beach - as there are full facilities their if required. Kids can play on the beach and they need to walk out a fair way before they are unable to stand up. We are... More

It's the best beach outside of cornwall. We hired paddle boats, canoes, great fun, cafe is ok too. Shop nice, I love this place and if you are a NT member parking is free.
