As you can see from the pictures, Lulworth Cove, is a breathtaking natural coved beach, located a short walk down from the village of West Lulworth on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

This magnificent geological horseshow-shaped bay was formed by the sea breaking through the Portland stone and is one of the world’s best examples of a landform.

The water is a stunning blue colour and is particularly impressive when viewed from the cliffs above.  It is a fairly easy walk up the cliffs,  you don’t have to walk far to enjoy magnificent views over the bay.

Dogs are permitted all year round on the left side of the slipway leading down to the beach.  There are toilets next to the beach and next to the Visitor’s Centre.

There is good access to the cove from the large car park, but this does get quite busy in the peak season.  Tickets from Lulworth Cove are also valid at the nearby Durdle Door Standard car park. Durdle Door is just 10 minutes away by car or a picturesque 30-minute coastal walk from Lulworth Cove, and the iconic rock arch is indeed something to behold.  Two stunning locations within easy access of each other!

Lulworth Cove is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and when you visit, it is easy to see why.
