Description:

Situated on the beautiful Jurassic Coast in Dorset, Durdle Door rock arch was carved out 10,000 years ago by the rough seas of the English Channel. It is the most famous attraction along this stunning coastal landscape. It is a natural arch, made from hard limestone and juts out almost vertically from the sea right next to the beach.

The rock is 200 feet tall and part of the Lulworth Estate, and is not only a world-famous landmark but also a popular holiday resort. The Durdle Door Holiday Park lies at the top of the cliff. In order to visit the rock, you need to drive through the holiday park to the pay and display car park behind it. From there it’s a ten-minute walk to the beach. Or you can park at Lulworth Cove and walk the South West Coastal Hiking Path from there.

You can access the beach via a steep path from the car park behind the caravan park, then take a set of wooden steps down the last stretch.

Durdle Door is a beautiful shingle beach stretching far off to the lovely chalk cliffs in the distance to the West. To the east beside the rock arch is the Man o’ War Cove.

Durdle Door is just west of West Lulworth on the B3070 which leaves the A352 (Wareham to Dorchester road) at Holmbridge.
