You can oark for £6 all day and park in any at park when ever you wang to move to a slightly different location. Pretty beach, and nice shallow water. Good facilities in site. Nice cafe, showers, w.cs. Large car park with good space. Lots of seaweed but didn't bother Us. Recommend. Helpful parking attendent.

A beautiful beach - when's there as a child and now take my kids - love the fact that it feels very uncommercial and just the way it did 30 years ago.

This is a great beach owned & managed by The National Trust. Yes it gets crowded, but it is huge so you can always find a 'spot to yourself'. Quite refreshing to be able to have a pot of tea or a coffee in proper cups. If you are looking for a naturist beach, it is a couple of hundred... More

Absolute classic National Trust catering at the ice cream kiosk yesterday. I look into the ice cream cabinet and see a box labelled Salted Caramel, umm thinks I, that looks good. Ok I'll have Salted Caramel. The server then tells me that I can't have Salted Caramel. Oh says I, why not? Server replies that they don't have any. Well... More

beautiful and unspoilt nature although I found the beach overcrowded and the car parks a nightmare. It was because of this I don't think I would go back unless it was out of season

We love Studland! We went to Knoll beach which has it all: clean sand, water sports, 'dogs on leads', National Trust cafe and an icecream stand. Also lots of loos and places to wash. You only pay to park if you're not a National Trust member. You can take the ferry to Sandbanks for a v quick journey to Poole.

We spent a lovely day at the beach in half term, being members of National Trust we parked for free in the car park. The beach is very sandy and stretches on a long way, the dunes are behind. Cafe was extremely busy but very good and reasonably priced. At the time we were there the NT were offering paddle... More
