Amazing! Breathtaking! Has to be seen to fully appreciate the natural beauty. Not suitable for the infirm or double buggies because the paths can be steep and made of loose rocks so sensible shoes or boots are recommended. Can Also get quite windy up there...More

Utterly spectacular. Not for people who cannot walk well up and down slopes and steep steps. Sensible shoes are a must as it's rocky. But the beaches and views were amazing.

Lovely place to be, beautiful views and a beautiful place, but the path to get to durdle door is so DANGEROUS and a no go for people who have mobility issues, but it could have a much better path built.

We went for a lovely walk to see Durdle dore and the sea was lovely and greeny blue and clear. Very shingly beach and we went on a windy day. Yet the photo opportunity was worth it.....

Revisited after 5 years. It’s still beautiful as always. Very good For Long walk lovers. Breathless views. There are Fish and chips cafe, gift shops and yammy homemade gelato. One minus - lots of tourists.

Wow! What a beautiful place to visit. Would not recommend for anyone that can’t walk very far as the paths down are steep and quite slippy on the gravel. It was beautiful beyond words! The beaches were all full and more people were heading down...More

The path was closed but they were working to make another set of steps. Not sure when they are going to be opened. Looked like it might be ready for the new season this year.

Yes, there are nearby caravan park type of accommodation. I suggest you book prior making you way there. I drove there which possibly is the better option. Take care

Unfortunately, there are no toilets and showers at hand nor any eating places.Best you take a packed lunch. Although on some days in the summer months there is a small take away in the car park.
