Great views, and good paths. Be prepared for some steep climbs, and get out the walking footwear and camera. Ice cream shops everywhere nearby!

A great walk across Bindon Hill down to Fossil Forest offering fantastic views across the Cove and the surrounding cliffs. Very steap stairs down from the top of the cliff towards the beach

Great walk, amazing views, lots of gentle ascending steps, very muddy so good walking boots are a must plus a warm hat and very bracing winds on this coastal path work.

A must to see. Beautiful place to visit. Pretty area with outstanding views. If you have a problem with mobility then the climb can prove difficult. But well worth the effort as views are great. Also the geological aspect is amazing.

The walk from West Lulworth to Osmington Mills cover a lot of experiences of the jurassic coast. But Weymouth is a little far away to get great views.
