West Lulworth, Dorset, England, United Kingdom

Lulworth Cove

Lulworth Cove is a horseshoe-shaped cove on the coastline of Dorset, United Kingdom, and is part of the renowned Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Cove's beach is composed of pebbles and shingle, and is a popular destination for tourists due to its ample parking, amenities, and boat trips to nearby attractions. During low tide, visitors can explore the rock pools teeming with sea creatures, making it an ideal spot for families. The Cove is also a favorite among hikers, as it has a national trail leading to it. A visitor center on the beach provides information about the area and accessible facilities. While the beach is safe for bathing depending on weather conditions, visitors should avoid sitting near the cliffs due to the risk of rockfalls. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year to the left of the slipway, and owners must clean up after their pets. The beach is equipped with toilets, bars, and restaurants, and parking is available at a pay-and-display car park in the village.
