Shell Bay is at the very end of the beautiful, unspoilt stretch of golden sand that forms Studland beach. Despite being on the edge of the busy Poole harbour and opposite the super exclusive developments at Sanbanks, Shell Bay retains a feel of the wilderness. This is partly due to being owned by the National Trust with the extensive sand dunes and heathland to the rear of the beach being a protected nature reserve.

The area at the southern end of the Shell Bay is a designated naturist beach. Attracting a diverse mix of people this part of Studland is also considered a gay-friendly beach.
