What is it

"Studland Bay in Dorset, England, is truly a modern-day, earthly paradise.

From Poole, I caught the chain ferry across the mouth of Poole Harbour from Sandbanks. Although the journey only takes around 3 minutes, you feel you are leaving the concrete suburbia of Poole for a gloriously isolated and wild peninsular of vivid purple heather, dense dunes and pale yellow, crunchy sand which stretches for over 4 miles, without a building in sight. Visually, it looks like a beach in the Greek Islands.

The sea is shallow, calm and the warmest water I have found in England. So many people were bathing. I measured the sea temperature as 22c (sometimes as warm as 24c) which compares very favourably to sea temperatures in Portugal, France and Spain and makes for blissful bathing.

The views across the bay towards the cliff formations of Old Harry Rocks are sensational. My visit, on 30 August 2016, was one of the hottest days of the year, reaching 30c.

South West Trains were running a promotion whereby you can travel from London Waterloo to Bournemouth/Poole for £16 return. That's £8 one way for the 108-mile journey from London Waterloo to Bournemoth.

If you like the simple pleasures of swimming, nature, walking and picnics, Studland Bay is a wonderful spot to visit for the day or longer."
