We are staying at Littlesea in Weymouth for a week at the end of Aug (07) We would like, weather permitting, to visit Studland naturist beach as we have heard so much about it but have never been there until now. Would anyone like to be our guide on getting there. It would be a mid-week visit. If you can help us please do drop us an email and we will get back to you.
To everyone worried about Studland beach. I started going there with my late wife many years ago and have coninued going a few times a year since she died. There has always been a problem with promiscous gay men in the dunes behind the beach but it should not put anyone off. As long as you stay on the beach or in the first line of dunes you will be perfectly safe and have a wonderful day if the weather allows you to. I have never seen anyone causing problems with a camera. There is always a few single males who seem to spend their day walking up and down the beach with their clothes in a rucksack on the back who seem to be sightseeing. Don't be put off visiting what is probably one of the best beaches in the country by runours. Stay near the beach and you will have a wonderful day out.
I would gladly guide you onto Studland as i only live a few miles away from it (Poole) and frequently use it in good weather, DebbieUK I would love to meet up with you on beach and show yopu around as well.
San and I (Rob) visited Studland for 3 days 11 to 13 June and spend most of each day on the beach tanning and swimming. Even when a couple of clouds came over it was still great to feel so free. We didn't mind being overlooked from the dunes above and a cpl of walks along the top did present some views of people totally enjoying themselves but the beach area is so large that you can just stay away and relax. I've always loved swimming naked and it was great to be able to do so. Although we did chat to several individuals and cpl's it would have been great to chat to more but we were afraid that people would get the wrong idea, so should we have made the first move, is there a correct way of saying hello, should we raise a flag to say come and chat and lower it when we wish to sleep and tan. I'm sure we will be there again soon so any views would be welcome.
I am in north dorset and really studland is easy to find. Finding somewhere to park can be a real hassle especially on summer weekends. I wouldn't even consider the poole side of the sandbanks ferry.
I will be there quite a lot weather allowing from 9th June for 2 weeks
You will not really need a guide to find the beach once you are inthearea. I think your first problem is to get there.
If you go via the ferry from Sandbanks (Poole/Bournmouth) side yoou will find massive queues for the ferry. If you decide to leave the car and go as foot passenger it is easier if you can find anywhere to park the car (very unlikely in august.
The other way to go is to drive round to the car parks at the other end of the beach. Although it isn't far it takes along time in summer due to the narrow route and everyone is on this route in holiday time. Again with parking difficulties when you get there.
I think the walk is slightly less from Poole but itdoes not make much difference. Some people cycle down to the ferry from cheaper public car parks.
The beach is really nice and you can generally sit away fromthe front edge where the textiles pass. The dunes are something else. It is possible to sit quietly away in the dunes but most are off limits (offficially). There are a number of adult things going on in the dunes at times which can be difficult depending on your point of view. Personally I would like rare, official, naturist beaches to be for families and other beaches to be used for sex. At the front it should not be a problem as there will be so many other people about.
Hope this is some help and you will enjoy the beach on a good day.
