About West Lulworth

Characterised by its quaint thatched cottages, the endearing little village of West Lulworth stands as the entry point to one of the Jurassic Coast’s most famous attractions, Lulworth Cove. This dramatic crescent-shaped pebble beach is lapped by luminous turquoise waters and has an abundance of rock pools that the kids won’t be able to resist exploring.

The views from the shore are outstanding, but if you want an up-close view you’ll need to be adventurous! From the activity centre here, you can kayak to Durdle Door and take in all the caves and cliffs that make this coastline so impressive. Or if you’re really brave, go coasteering to plunge off craggy rocks and paddle through ancient tunnels.

If that all sounds a bit much, you can stroll to Durdle Door instead! The incredible limestone arch is over 10,000 years old and easily ranks as one of England’s most outstanding natural wonders. A visit here is essential!
