More of a peninsula that an island, the Isle of Purbeck’s jaw-dropping landscape encompasses a multitude of secret beaches and hidden coves. Steep cliff’s drop away abruptly into the sea leaving behind incredible geological structures including big arches, towering stacks and beautiful sandy beaches. There’s a reason why it’s now designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Please be aware that many of the cliffs are crumbling and their edges should avoided. Follow all signage and stick to the South West Coast Path and it’s connecting paths.
