Lulworth Cove, West Lulworth

(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Lulworth Cove represent two of Britain's finest examples of a cove and a rock arch. Take the footpath between the two landforms. Lulworth Cove forms a nearly perfect horseshoe around the sea, with soft sand along the high point in its curve and cliffs tumbling down to the water at the cove's ends. About 2 km (1.25 mi) to the east, the rock arch of Durdle Door juts out into the sea. It takes its name from the Old English word for drill, "thirl," which aptly describes how the sea created a large hole in the limestone cliff. The area retains its natural setting, and a mobile kiosk on the walking path to the arch in summer is the only facility you'll find here.
