    Durdle Door Beach Information

    Durdle Door beach is named after the natural arch that reaches out into the sea.

    The arch is one of Dorsets most cherished beauty spots a 30 (ish) minute walk from Lulworth Cove or 15 (ish) minute walk from the holiday park. This location on the South West Coast Path is very popular.

    Although a popular beach this fine pebble beach is never too busy, in part due to its inaccessibility being a decent walk and steep steps down to the beach.

    No facilities at the beach only a small kiosk on the hillside above the beach. The nearest car park and shops are at the Durdle Door holiday park or a longer walk from Lulworth Cove.

    Durdle Door Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Durdle Door Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
