We parked in Lulworth Cove and had a picnic on the beautiful hill overlooking the cove. Lots of beautiful scenery and textbook geography to make the GCSE Geography days come flooding back. Lovely little boats to catch a ride in and houses to dream of owning! Beautiful clear water to paddle and swim in.Lovely space for the children to run... More

The walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door is a bit difficult in parts but well worth the effort as the views along the way are stunning. Durdle Door is just lovely and the beach didn't seem to get too crowded but getting down to it was a bit challenging and not everyone would be able to access it, it... More

Do not miss this attraction near Weymouth. The views are absolutely stunning. There are also several nice restaurants right next to Lulworth Cove. We only got coffee, but will be back to try more.

From the Lulworth Cove Parking is 1 mile far. It's a long path that goes up and down! It's a bit tiring but the view makes it worthwhile!!!

Well worth a visit. The cliff walk between the 2 is invigorating, if a little challenging and the views of the coastline and across to Portland are stunning. Very reasonable parking prices which can be interchanged between both locations - a refreshing change from the usual rip-off experienced at many attractions. Uncommercialised and just beautiful.

Perfect for a short summer break (3 days) with great beaches, good swimming and picturesque walks. The beaches around Durdle door in particular are wonderful for swimming. Evening walks along the coast path guarantee a beautiful sunset.

Long time since we last visited here (20 years+) and although the views are spectacular we wouldn't even bother to walk on the beach....so crowded it would have been a nightmare trying to manoeuvre through the bodies!

This is a little slice if Greece on the Dorset Coast. Ample parking and facilities on site. Make sure you have change for parking. It's a short walk down to the cove, easily accessible for all. There are two areas to set up base, the left side suited us, a further walk, but quieter and plenty of room. The waves... More

We visited when the world and his wife went! so will go back out of season. Only 1 parking machine working in carpark, and a 10min walk to search for another. Too much rubbish all over the place, it's such a shame, this must be a financial boom for the local area, can the council not employ regular litter pickers,... More
