Lulworth Cove represent two of Britain's finest examples of a cove and a rock arch. Take the footpath between the two landforms. Lulworth Cove forms a nearly perfect horseshoe around the sea, with soft sand along the high point in its curve and cliffs tumbling down to the water at the cove's ends. About 2 km (1.25 mi) to the east, the rock arch of Durdle Door juts out into the sea. It takes its name from the Old English word for drill, "thirl," which aptly describes how the sea created a large hole in the limestone cliff. The area retains its natural setting, and a mobile kiosk on the walking path to the arch in summer is the only facility you'll find here.

Lulworth cove is a brilliant place to go on a walk. It is an amazing naturally formed cove that is sheltered from the cold sea so it is nice to swim in in the summer. You can climb up the cliff to get a great view of the cove, make sure to bring your camera!
Went here on a school visit very good place,nice village/shop and good restaurant as well a a stunning beach and view as well as the mountain you go can walk on only bad thing is the toilets are very dirty and the car park is hard to get out of when muddy or steep furthermore not so bad.
