Studland is a small village close to Swanage and Wareham with great, sandy beaches. Owned by the National Trust, they have car parks attached and some offer watersports. Riding lessons on the beach are available from the local riding stables on some beaches. With 4 miles of golden, sandy beach, Studland Bay has 4 beaches.
Knoll Beach is a sandy beach backed by a wilderness of dunes. The beach has wide open spaces and has a designated area for a nudist beach. The beach can be popular for watersports and there is a shop on the beach. Middle Beach is another sandy beach, sheltered by low cliffs. Watersports are popular here with locals and visitors. Shell Bay is a sandy beach, popular with families, with dunes as a backdrop with lots for the children to explore. And finally, South Beach is a sheltered cove that gently shelves into the water. This sandy beach is popular with families as the water here is quite shallow. The beach is backed by steep hills and faces north so tends to get the most sun.
There are lots of trails around Studland and beyond. For instance, pick up the South West Coast Path from here. Explore the Studland to Swanage trail, or the walk to Old Harrys Rock. The chalky rocks which make up Old Harrys Rock are part of the 95 mile Jurassic Coast that stretches to Exeter and has spectacular views. In addition, there are specific trails through the woodland and Nature Reserve. You may be lucky enough here to spot deer, various species of wildlife and unusual wildflowers. There are a few cafes on the beaches to eat, a convenience store and a few pubs in the village. The Black Swan Inn and The Crows Nest Inn has gardens and the Crows Nest has a play area for the children. In conclusion, Studland is the perfect balance of peace and tranquillity, with the knowledge that larger busier towns are not far away.
