Lulworth Cove, formed approximately 10,000 years, was created by river and sea erosion. This erosion is ongoing, if imperceptible in human timesacles.
There is a Portland Stone entrance, with the the softer Purbeck, Wealden, Greensand and Chalk rocks gradually eroding away.
Within Lulworth Cove is a pebble beach, very popular with tourists. Local facilities include shops, pubs and a cafe on the beach. There is also the Heritage Centre, which explains in detail how Lulworth Cove was formed, and all about the geology and fossils found in the vicinity.
Lulworth Cove is a pebble beach and by virtue of its natural protection is very sheltered.
