Lulworth Cove

Pebbles and high cliffs characterise Lulworth Cove, where the difference between the Portland stone and the softer Purbeck can be clearly noted in the bay's near-perfect circular shape, making it a sheltered harbour for boats. The Portland stone, which guards the entrance, erodes much more slowly than the Purbeck, giving rise to one of Dorset’s most famous coastal images.

The Lulworth Cove Heritage Centre and the 17th century Lulworth Castle make Lulworth Cove and its crescent-shaped pebbly beach extremely busy in summer.
