Walk - Bindon Hill
4.2 miles (6.7 km)
West Lulworth car park BH20 5RQ West Lulworth car park
Moderate - There are some stretches of steep ascent and descent, with long flights of steps too.
A breathtaking walk high above the famously beautiful Lulworth Cove, giving spectacular views over land and sea. In Mupe Cove, to the east, chalk cliffs rear dramatically from limestone ledges and the waves lap around a chain of tiny islands before curling in around Lulworth to lick along its shingle beach. Just a few metres to the west, the sea has carved caves and arches in the softer rock. Children old enough for the distance and hills will love the rocks and beach. A good walk for dogs too, as it passes a beach and a pub where dogs are welcome, and a pleasure in autumn, when the gorse and late flowers of the heathland and grasslands still make a colourful display.
Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
NB The walk passes through a MOD range, which is sometimes used for firing practice, when red flags are flown. For more details see our page on Military Training areas. As live ammunition is used, you must not stray off the paths which are clearly marked by yellow posts, and do not pick up any metal objects lying on the ground.
