The flat peninsula of Studland stretches eastwards from the Isle of Purbeck towards the spit which is Sandbanks leaving a channel of only a few hundred metres in between which is the only connection between Poole Harbour and the sea. It derives its name from that of the village at its head.

It is traversed from west to east by a toll road which leads to the chain ferry which traverses the harbour mouth carrying foot passengers, cars and a bus service.

At its eastern extremity is an area of marshland with a wooden footway running through the reeds which form the predominant vegetation. To its south, against the waters of Studland Bay are broad sandy beaches backed by sand dunes topped off with maram grass. Part of the beach is known as Shell Bay because amongst the seaweed which is thrown up by the waves, it is also littered with all manner of shells. The beaches are popular with locals and tourists alike as a place for a stroll or picnic.

Towards the centre of the peninsula and between the beach and the road is an extensive lake of brackish water known as Little Sea which is a haven for wildlife, particularly birds.

Large areas of the Purbecks to the west of Studland are they palyground of the military with either limited or no access to the public. For a considerable time after World War II the areas around Agglestone and Little Sea were ringed with signs warning of the dangers of military obstructions and there were instances of accidents involving hidden explosives.

The peninsula, owned and managed by the National Trust, is a haven for wildlife and, on Studland Heath, is to be found the Little Seabird Sanctuary.


The Studland Peninsula is home to all of Britains six native reptiles including the sand lizard.
