Durdle Door, Dorset

If you fancy a good old fashioned picnic when you’re out and about in Dorset, head for Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast. This secluded cove nestles in the shadow of a world famous limestone arch rising almost vertically from the sea. The sloping shingle beach is a lovely spot for a stroll, or for rockpooling, fossil hunting, bathing and snorkelling, though small children should be supervised carefully as the sand in the bay shelves deeply away in places.

Pay and display car park on the cliff top; from March-October loos can be found at the Nearby Durdle Door Holiday Park.
