Walk down the road from the car park to the cove. Alternatively, walk along the cliff path for a good view of the cove and '''Stair Hole''', another geological feature. It is possible to walk along the hills that surround the cove or along the shingle beach. Access to the area east of the cove is restricted as it is part of a firing range. It is normally only open at weekends and throughout August.
The area is famous for Lulworth Cove, an important feature of the Jurassic Coast. West Lulworth is situated about half a mile inland from the cove.
