Lulworth Cove
The cove is a geologist's dream that is for sure, and encompasses a wide array of natural life. A km to the west is the natural arch Durdle Door, and the cottages of West Lulworth make this place a lovely place to visit.

Stair Hole
At the western point of the cove, there is a formation of arches created by the sea upon the soft limestone.
