  • Located in the next small cove to the more famous Durdle Door is Man O’ War beach. Whilst the rock formations are not quite as spectacular as next door the headland is still pretty impressive.

    Good for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and diving, the water is protected from swells by a partially submerged offshore reef.
