Studland Beach and Nature Reserve
Fine sandy beaches stretch continuously for 4 miles from South Haven Point to the chalk cliffs of Handfast Point and Old Harry Rocks, including Shell Bay. A designated section of naturist beach is at Knoll beach.
The heathland behind the beach is a National Nature Reserve with many rare birds. Spyway Farm and Blackers Hole near Langton Matravers support important bird and butterfly habitats as well as rare plants and give access to the sea at Dancing Ledge.
NB: To find details of where you can walk your dog, visit our website.
Try out the Kayaking Wildlife Trail - buy the trail guide from the shop at Knoll Beach. Cycle to the beach on Purbeck Cycle Ride Route 2 (The Rempstone Ride).
