On our visit to Dorset, we first visited Lulworth cove and got disgusted with the smell of murky water. The weed was rotten and foul smell was making it difficult to stay there. The beach was shingle so we didn't like it either. It was...More

Well worth the small side-trip (and, indeed, anywhere on the Jurassic Coast is a side-trip). Short hike down a steep hill. Beautiful scenery right and left. Go late in the day - ideally around sunset.

I came here to see the view, parked my car, looked at the parking charges and promptly left. I don't enjoy being ripped off so I won't be bothering with that again.

There is roadside parking possible if you are prepared to walk the extra distance. however I don't remember the carparks at either Durdle or the cove having barriers. (might be wrong).
