So, this world heritage site which can be found on the southern coast of England is easily one of the most beautiful places to visit in UK. The 140-million-year-old Jurassic coast – voted the 5th greatest natural wonder in Britain – stretches over a distance of 96 miles starting from or Combe Point near Exmouth in East Devon to Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in East Dorset. The scenic area is home to popular beauty spots such as the natural limestone arch of Doodle Door (the coast’s most photographed landmark) and Lulworth Cove – one of the finest coves in England.

The landscape of the Jurassic Coast is a feast for the senses. Its stories stimulate mind, body and soul. It captures our imagination and invites us to find a sense of belonging, to return again and again to experience all it has to offer. This is my holiday adventure.

First, I enjoyed a walk along the beach with a luxurious ice-cream to enjoy as I visited the scenic views and the wonderful cave and the beautiful doodle door which is a significant landscape. The stone is mostly lime stone which I personally think is amazing Jurassic coast has many vast coast lines, scenery and landscape has many worthwhile and inspiring attractions and beams and rays of colours, and a burst of aroma and colour.

The sea is so blue and beautiful and clear and clean it has the fresh empowering scent of salt which makes me feel fresh and hygienic and most of all spotless. The little cottage that overlook the sea makes me feel like I’m in a fairy tale. The Jurassic coast is so authentic and old and I hope it stays that way because it’s a great for holiday makers like my self and my family. We enjoy walking and driving the coast as a family because there is so much to do and to see for all ages from young to old. You can rent out or stay as a family in your own cars or even if you have a house there.

The sea is a great place to swim or to learn to swim because the waves are friendly and you can take it easy. You can also swim under the most famous doodle door which is one of the world’s greatest landscape which has been around over 65 million years.

What me and my family especially enjoyed doing was driving and stopping to take different breath-taking views and pictures of the fabulous views and sights. Sometimes we went down and experienced the observed them first hand. Which was a fun and friendly thing to do with your family and friends and a wonderful experience. It is a great place to go and even just to go for a day or two but I highly recommend going for a week or two because there is so much to do you may need even three weeks to fill it all in. I hope you enjoy my piece and use it for your holiday making.
