Durdle Door Pathway

South West Coastal Path

If you want to visit any beach on the South West of England, the best way to reach your destination is via the South West Coastal Path. At a distance of 630 miles, this path makes up the longest National Trail in the UK and is a fantastic way to hop between coastal views. Starting in Somerset's Minehead and trailing all the way to Poole Harbour, this path makes the best casual walk for the view, or the ideal challenge for someone looking to complete the journey from start to end.
