White Nothe Beach - Dorset

White Nothe is an imposing 450 feet (160 m) tall white chalk headland on the edge of Ringstead Bay. At the foot of the western side of the headland is a small, rarely visited beach.

Access to the beach is somewhat challenging. Apart from being a considerable walk along the coast path from anywhere there is the stepp "Smuggler's Path" to negotiate as it zig-zags down the cliff. In addition, the last 30 feet or so involve a climb down a rickety ladder-like contraption.
