Even though Lulworth Cove is extremely busy during the summer, it is worth a short visit, as it's a good example of how the sea can force its way through soft rock to form, in this case, a cove accessed from the sea by a narrow passage guarded by outcrops of hard rock on either side. If you take a short circular walk from the car park of less than half a mile, you can see other dramatic features, such as the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole, both also the result of uncommon marine and geological forces. It is Durdle Door, however, that is the 5 star natural attraction. It is a short, but strenuous, walk from Lulworth Cove, or else you can park on the top road or drive to the public car park accessed from the top road through the holiday park / camping site. Durdle Door is an exceptionally beautiful coastal feature (a rock arch in the sea), jutting out from a spectacular chalk coastline, with terrific beaches on either side, safe for swimming.
