There is a WWII-era pillbox at the northern end of South Beach (known as Redend Point). It is Grade II listed and was built circa 1941 as part of the Studland coastal defences.


The nearest car park for South Beach is a National Trust car park next to the Bankes Arms pub.


There are no toilets on South Beach. The nearest toilets are past the Bankes Arms pub, on the way to Old Harry Rocks.


No toilets available here. Accessible parking spaces are available in the car park.


Dogs are welcome here all year. Between 1 May and 30 September dogs must be on a lead less than than two metres in length.


South Beach is a gently shelving beach, suitable for bathing depending on weather conditions. No BBQs on the beach or heathland and no lifeguard service in operation.
