Visit Studland South Beach

Studland South Beach is a lovely sandy beach popular with families as the clear shallow waters are great for children and family days out.

South beach is the smallest of the four Studland’s beaches, with a cafe, convenient parking and facilities.

The beaches at Studland are Shell Bay, Knoll Beach, Middle Beach and South Beach and are owned by the National Trust.

Walkers can take the designated trails in the surrounding area, or take the coastal path along the cliffs to Old Harry Rocks.

This is a dog-friendly beach all year round, but they must be kept on a lead in the summer season.
