Attraction Information

Studland Beach and Nature Reserve

A glorious slice of natural coastline in Purbeck featuring a four-mile stretch of golden, sandy beach, with gently shelving bathing waters and views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. Ideal for water sports and includes the most popular naturist beach in Britain. The heathland behind the beach is a haven for native wildlife and features all six British reptiles. Designated trails through the sand dunes and woodlands allow for exploration and spotting of deer, insects and bird life as well as a wealth of wild flowers.

Studland was the inspiration for Toytown in Enid Blyton's Noddy!

Note: Shell Bay toilets are low-water flush, only other toilets at Knoll Beach and Middle Beach.

Beach huts are available for hire all year round 01929 450259.

Dogs welcome October to April.
