Studland Bay

Studland Bay

Studland Bay adds to Dorset’s collection of remarkable beaches, and it offers something quite unique.

A 4 mile stretch of golden sands are accompanied by white, chalk cliffs that overlook the beach. Between the cliffs and beach lie dunes consisting of sand and Greenland. These are home to an array of rare wildlife, including endangered sand lizards and rare butterflies.

Looking out to sea, on the right you will find Old Harry Rocks, a unique chalk structure that marks the East side of the Jurassic Coast. Old Harry Rocks and Studland Bay have a lot in common, where the chalk cliffs at Studland Bay, a similar chalk structure to Old Harry Rocks, have both eroded over time to form their current shape.

Old Harry Rocks

Studland’s 4 mile bay is home to 4 different beaches; Shell Bay, Knoll Beach, Middle Beach and South Beach. The bay and beaches within have been managed by the National Trust since 1982.

Studland Bay really is a magnificent place to visit. Take the normal beach gear, have a dip in the sea, relax on the golden sands and enjoy the view of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. It’s a place like no other!
