Visit Knoll Beach

Studland’s Knoll Beach is a popular choice for families on the Dorset coast. Fun for all with plenty of activities as well as family-friendly events taking place during the holidays.

The beach has soft white sand and clear clean water for swimming and there is a café serving light lunches and refreshments overlooks the seafront.

For the more adventurous, there’s a water sports centre with stand up paddle boards and kayaks available to hire as well as sailing or power boat trips

Between Knoll Beach and Shell Bay there is a designated nudist beach (marked by signs)!

The Studland Peninsula is owned by the National Trust and there is parking (free for National Trust members) and toilets close to all four of Studland’s beaches.
