Durdle Door is the name of the limestone rock arch at the eastern end of this sand and shingle cove. Located on Dorset's World Heritage Jurassic Coast this is just one of several geological curiosities within a stone's throw of each other. The beach sits at the base of high, white limestone cliffs and is only accessible from neighbouring Lulworth Cove via lots and lots of steps. This ensures it is never too busy! Durdle Door beach is renowned for its clear calm waters; along with interesting rock formations and caves, it's a great spot for snorkelling or just to explore.
