A lovely beach to go walking or just to sit and enjoy the view at any time of the year. Good car parking, toilets and a nice cafe; even in summertime it doesn't get too crowded or noisy.

This has to be one of my favourite places. Beautiful scenery, safe sandy beaches with good local facilities provided by the National Trust. Parking is free if you are a member. Toilets are clean, although being on the beach, are often sandy.The National Trust also provide a shop with souvenirs and good basic food. If you are interested in the... More

Shell Bay beach very clean and tidy. Lots of soft sand (and a few sandy hills). Once you get up to the higher ground you can see around the corner to Old Harry Rocks (towards Swanage, Isle of Purbeck) in the distance. Open top bus (one per hour) was still running outside the UK summer season (3rd week of September)... More

Even on a blustery and showery August day, Studland was a beautiful place to spend a few hours (and probably the whole day). The beach is lovely and, once you're a few hundred yards from the entrance, relatively quiet. There are well marked walking paths through the dunes and around the inland lake. There is a hire centre for all... More
