The South West Coast Path is considered to be one of the world’s greatest walks. It includes all of the 95 miles of the Jurassic Coast, declared a World Heritage Site in 2001. It is the only place in the world where the cliffs, in a continuous sequence of rocks, reveals 185 million years of the earth’s history.
The walk from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door is just over one mile, quite strenuous, but well worth the effort. Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch, 160 feet long. The scenery is breathtaking. The steep cliff path leads down to the shingle beach, where the arch can be viewed at close range. Access to the cliff path may be obtained from Durdle Door Holiday Park, where there is a car park and refreshment facilities available to the public.
