Chapmans Pool Beach

Chapman’s Pool is is a small cove backed by cliffs on the Isle of Purbeck near the village of Worth Matravers. You could describe this as a much smaller Lulworth Cove.

The beach is a mix of sand, shingles and rocks and it is advised to have beach shoes.

The beach has no facilities and the nearest car parking is a short coast walk away at the Renscombe car park, just follow Weston Road out of Worth Matravers.

Like many Dorset beaches on the Jurassic Coast, there are lots of fossils to be found which should keep children amused for hours.
