Studland Bay and Village

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.

Studland Beach has a number of cafes along its 4 miles for more information visit

Studland Watersports

Studland Watersports is a long-established seafront operation on the magnificent sands of Knoll Beach. The bay is tucked away around the corner from Sandbanks, protected from the prevailing wind by the picturesque cliffs of Ballard Down and far away from the shipping channels as such, lending itself perfectly to watersports of all kinds. The most famous monument in the vicinity is Old Harry rocks, which marks the start of the beautiful Jurassic coast.
