Lulworth Cove is world famous for its crescent shaped bay of beautiful clear water backed by stunning cliffs. The small pebble beach is well sheltered and is a favourite with swimmers and snorkellers.
Nearby lies some very interesting geology such as the rock arches of Stair Hole and Durdle Door as well as the fossil forest at Little Bindon.
There are fine walks west along the South West Coast Path over Stair Hole and Dungy Head to Durdle Door and the chalk headlands of Swyre Head and Bat's Head towards Ringstead or east over Bindon Hill to Mupe Bay and Worbarrow Bay.
Please be aware that to the east of Lulworth the land is Ministry of Defence property so the area may be out of bounds during live firing practice.
