Lulworth Cove is within the Natural World Heritage Coastline. It has a horse shoe beach which is a mix of sand and pebbles. The cove is surrounded by high cliffs (135m, 440ft) and this area of the coast has some of the most fascinating geology in Europe. The Cove is also probably one of England's most remarkable natural sites and attracts lots of visitors.
At the West Lulworth Heritage Centre you have a museum about Lulworth and its coast, the history of the village and souvenirs. Lulworth Cove is part of the Lulworth estate, which has been owned by the same family since the mid 1600s.
The Steps at the east end of the beach lead to the Fossil Forest and Mupe Bay with a stunning walk along the cliff top - this footpath is within the MoD restricted area and is only open on weekends and the whole of August.
The village of West Lulworth has parking, shops and a pub.
Heritage Centre gives good information about the area and its geology. Many cafes and icecream outlets and gift shops.
