Middle beach stud land kayaking
May 2021
Did an intro to kayaking at middle beach studland. I may have spent more time under the water than paddling on it but it was good fun. Elliot our instructor was great and I’ll be looking to do another one of their courses.

Studland Kayakiung
Apr 2021
We had a brilliant time kayaking out to Old Harry Rocks. Elliot was a brilliant instructor, and fished me and my daughter out of the salty brine when we managed to capsize. Hard work, sore shoulders, great fun. Friendly, covid-safe, great fun.

Great Beach Walk
Oct 2020
Great walk with a dog! lovely wide sandy beach with car parking (a little expensive if staying all day). Good family visit. Clean Beach. Went off season, so no cafe open etc, but nevertheless very good visit.

Nice
Oct 2020 • Couples
Nice beach to walk along on an autumn day. There was a lot of seaweed on it to begin with near the Middle Beach Cafe. I couldn’t find a nice place to sit to eat my bacon sandwich and drink my coffee but as you walked further on it improved. There are restaurants and toilets further up, that one is called South Beach which I think I prefer.

wonderful vast clean beaches
Oct 2020 • Family
Wonderful wide clean beaches and amazing views particularly with the cruiser ships moored off the coast. The vast areas of sand dunes also provide a degree of privacy and wind protection.

A popular beach but parking is expensive.
Aug 2020
A wonderful sandy beach, which is very popular, the beach has a cafe, toilets and a place to shower and wash sandy feet. A days parking is expensive and there is very little parking in Studland.

Lovely beach, but social distancing out of the window
Aug 2020
Lovely sandy beach but not wide at all and FAR FAR too busy in the hot weather. Impossible to social distance. We got there at 9am when the car park opened and were the second family on the beach so had the pick of spots. It filled up very quickly - it was fine in the water (which is just amazing - warm and shallow for what seems like miles)but through the morning, more and more people kept arriving, even though the beach was packed and they probably should have turned round. The final straw was one family pitching their sun tent literally 5cm from ours, so we upped and left. Everyone was ignoring the one way paths to and from the beach, and the zig zag up is very narrow. Will definitely return at a quieter time, preferably when covid has done one.

MIDDLE

As the names suggests it’s the middle bit of beach. It has a good size NT car park, but it did get full very quickly. There’s also a small cafe just down the dunes. It has a nice walk to Fort Henry which is part of the WW2 defences carry on down the path which is a lovely nature walk and you’ll also see Old Harry Rocks. The beach it’s self is sandy an the Bay would be great for swimming. If you go the other way you’ll see the impressive dragons teeth which is also part of the defences.

We come to Dorset every year and love going to middle beach. This year however it was super packed which was bound to happen given the current circumstances, so you’ll need to get there early for a spot. The steps down to the rocks have been taken away unfortunately, probably down to people not respecting the sea and the cliffs given that a lot of the visitors have never been. The beach is sandy and the water is shallow so great for kids. The rocks, if you do
manage to get over to them are very slippery so you’ll need beach shoes, don’t get caught out by the incoming sea though as you can get cut off, which has obviously happened. There is a water sports centre which mainly does kayak adventures which need to be booked in advance.

Sandy beach, great for dogs
Mar 2020 • Couples
Great beach for dogs and people walking. Went to Knoll beach, where parking was £3 for 2 Hours. Bit pricey especially at this time of year, March. However, cafe and toilets were clean.
