Wow. It doesn't get more stunning than this beautiful coastal area. We struck luck as it was a gorgeous day which does justice to this prehistoric looking coastline. Ended up spending the day driving and walking to get to some of the best views imaginable. Got some nice pictures that belong on a canvas. Highly recommended.

Love all the sea and stones and fossils but paying £5 per parking session was over the top. Some had pay by the hour but most were for the day. We only pop in and have a short wander so we missed some beaches due to cost.

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!! Drive along the coast, park and visit Durdles Door and lulworth cove! Warning: The walk down is easy!! However, going back up to the car is VERY steep!! pay for parking

Take the X53 bus and try to get the front seat. Great views and you can go from Weymouth to Lyme Regis and back for £8.

wear decent foot ware as there can be some steep and/or long walking depending on what you chose, but bring a camera! It was a busy, summer holiday, Saturday when we went so was quite busy, but plenty of room for everyone, and parking.

One of my favourite places in the world. Starting in Exmouth at Orcombe Point and going east for miles along the coastal path, giving you spectacular scenery and views and if you're lucky enough to have a clear sunny day, it's hard to beat. Some of the paths do get rather close to the cliff edge in places so families... More

We spent about two days on the Jurassic coast visiting both east Devon and west Dorset. We looked around between Budleigh salterton and Portland Bill, pretty much covering the Jurassic coast. There are a large number of places you could stop by, and of course the coast is best covered by walking. There is a coastal path that the walkers... More

The South West coastine is stunningly breathtaking with an abundance of wildlife of birds, flowers , bees and butterflies during the time we visited. We did Sidmouth to Exmouth (least liked due to large caravan park have to pass through) 13 miles; Beer to Sidmouth (favourite route) 9 miles; Beer to Lyme Regis ( route partially closed due to landslip...

I got the x53 bus service from Exeter to Weymouth, via Lyme Regis, Bridport and Axminster via the x31, and I couldn't recommend more highly. A week bus pass is currently £20, a bargain. Best.bus.service.ever and I know my buses :) Beautiful views, hassle free.

Absolutely beautiful view. Mostly a pebble beach so wouldn't go there to relax or chill out. But its great to take some nice pictures and appreciate the view. Parking is nearby. £2 for the whole day which was pretty good.
