Durdle Door

Arguably one of the most photographed beaches in Dorset Durdle Door is situated near Lulworth and is part of the Jurassic Coast of Dorset. This beautiful beach gets its name from the giant natural archway formed in the limestone cliffs by the action of waves over thousands of years.

The beach is sloping and mainly made up of small shingle with a few sandy areas and at low tide there are some rock pools. Care is needed if you choose to swim at Durdle Door as there is a steep underwater slope.

Parking and Access
Access is via Durdle Door Holiday Park where there is a pay and display car park area on the cliff top. After parking there is a short walk and some very steep steps down the cliffs to the beach so it may not be suitable for the elderly or disabled and difficult to traverse with pushchairs. Durdle Door is a dog friendly beach.

Facilities
On the beach itself there are no facilities or toilets so you can either cross your legs or trek back to the holiday park and use the public loos there.

Close by
Nearby and worth a visit is Lulworth Cove and Lulworth village.
