Durdle Dor – No.7
Dorset has always been famous for its Jurassic coastline and stunning dramatic rock formations – including the spectacular Durdle Dor (which takes the shape of an archway but which also looks like a dragon leaning over to take a sip of water from the sea) will be sure to fire your imagination. You get to the beach on foot via a well trodden path and steep steps down from the Car Park (located on the cliff top at Durdle Door Holiday Park.) or over the hill from Lulworth Cove. The Marine Conservation Society has recognized the beach for its high water quality- it shelves steeply in places so youngsters should be carefully supervised when paddling in the clear blue waters. To the east of Durdle Dor is another beach comprising sand and fine pebbles, Man O’ War beach provides safer bathing in shallower waters.
