Around 1km of Studland Bay has been set aside for naturism. It’s one of the UK’s most well-known official naturist spots.

Although part of Knoll Beach, it is quite separate to the family-oriented main stretch of beach and dunes, and a half an hour walk from either Knoll Beach car park or Shell Bay car park. It is also accessible from Ferry Road, where there may be parking available.

The naturist beach has its own dedicated and clearly-marked area.

A snack van operates at the naturist beach during the summer months.

Good to know…

  • The nearest public toilets are at Knoll Beach or at Shell Bay car park
  • Users of this long-established naturist beach must adhere to the British Naturism beach code and the area is regularly monitored by National Trust rangers
