Well worth a visit. The Durdle Door walk is great exercise and the view at the end makes the effort worthwhile.

Very beautiful scenery especially from the coastal path in the car park. A hard climb but worth the views!

You can never tire of this place, there is always something different to see, from the state of the sea, the high or low tide or the massive waves which roll across the cove in winter with spring tides and high winds. Stair Hole Cove (next door) is also amazing in terms of the geology. The little gift shop opposite... More

I first went to Durdle Door about 50 years ago and the only thing that has changed is the cost of parking! £3 for 2 hours!!! It's still just as photogenic as it always has been You need walking boots and a lot of stamina to truly appreciate the arch, but it's worth it whatever the weather

Only drawback is steps to the beach at Durdle Door have been washed away and the locals are too busy arguing who should replace them to actually do it. I believe they have been like this for 3 years now. Acess possible but for anybody over age of 45 its risky!

This is a nice little walk to the sea past a few shops and places to eat and drink. The parking cost is a bit excessive. It's nice to continue the walk around the cove and watch the sea birds and look for things washed up on the beach. The fish shop tends to open at the weekend out of... More
