Guide to Dorset's beaches

Worbarrow Bay

Worbarrow Bay

Worbarrow Bay is a wide shingle beach just along the coast from Lulworth. The beach is flanked by the headland of Worbarrow Tout to the east and the tall sloping cliffs of Flower's Barrow to the west.

As part of the Lulworth (firing) Ranges the beach is only accessible on weekends and holidays. At any other time there may be military training taking place in the area.

The closest village to Worbarrow is Tyneham, which was subject to a compulsory purchase order in 1948 by the Army and has been empty ever since.
