    The natural limestone arch is a true eye-catcher and comes with a beautiful beach. Sure-footedness is required to climb down the stairs that take you to the beach.

    Durdle Door is one of the most iconic landmarks in Dorset and one of the most well-known sights along the South West Coast Path. This magnificent natural limestone arch was formed when the power of the waves eroded the rock and forged a hole through the middle. The name Durdle is derived from an old English word ‘thirl’, which means to pierce, bore or drill.

    Definitely this is famous must see place. Often overcrowded and parking fees very expensive.

    Quite easy to get to and is a great walk for the whole family. On a hot, calm day it is a great place for a dip.

    Most of them stay with Durdle Door. In my view, the walk is worth it right on the beach to the end.

    A hike from Lulworth Cove is highly recommended! Beautiful on top of the cliffs, but also down on the beach. The levels, however, are not to be underestimated, because you can not hold on.

    There are two routes to access Durdle Door. Walk from Lulworth Cove (a longer walk) or from Durdle Door Camp parking (shorter).
