Need advice on Jurassic coast

We are at the moment in Devon and would like to visit the Jurassic coast. We do jot p I an to drive the entire route as we will not have enough time. We are located in Morehampstead area and would like to go to a scenic spot. We are not interested in fossils, but can appreciate scenic coastlines, beaches and villages. Your advice will be appreciated.

I liked Beer in Devon - tiny cleft in the cliffs with crabbing/fishing vessels pulled up on the pebbles. You can go mackeral fishing if you wish and keep all you catch. Few decent pubs and cafes plus some antiques places.

Thank you. Is it perhaps possible to name places along the Jurassic coast? We have transport of our own. We do not want to drive the whole day, so if possible, a few villages to experience would help us. Thank you!!

The Jurassic coast starts in the Swanage area and continues right along to the Sidmouth area.

Some of my favourite parts are Beer, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Burton Bradstock, Abbotsbury, Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Kimmeridge.

Between Lyme Regis and Abbotsbury you have Golden Cap which is the highest cliff on the South Coast.

Go to Lulworth Cove. Park in the large field to the RHS. Walk into the Cove just to get an idea of what it is like, then walk back through the car park and West towards Durdle Door. Walk above Durdle Door until you can look back into the Door and see Man-o-war bay. That should take just over an hour. If you want to pop down to the Door bay, do but you need two good knees. Takes about 20 minutes to trott down and up and have aquick look around.

Then back to Lulworth, walking round the Cove will take an hour one way and less the other. Tea in one of the Lobster bars will take an hour.

If you want more walking with a different view you can walk back from the furthest West point by following one of the many walking trails inland.
