Relatively easy walk from Lulworth cove to Durdle Door. Nice landscape and stunning view! Nice afternoon walk with family. Bring good shoes and go all the way down to the beach at Durdle door. The cliffs are impressive and show interesting geological formations.

Went around Lulworth Cove (though not with the intention of walking). We were just visiting and sightseeing.But the Cove area is beautiful and you see scenic spots. Stopped to eat on the way.
