Durdle Door, Wareham, Dorset BH20, UK
An amazing natural formation of a water body enclosed by land on all sides. You might be familiar with the place if you have seen the movie 'The Life of Pi'. The last scene of the movie where one seas the whale diving out of the water during night was inspired by this location. The film and certain scenes were obviously animated and graphically designed but the actual location where this was shot was Lulworth cove. There is plenty of parking and amenities like gift shop, handicap support, eateries, toilets etc. at the entrance. It is a slight ascend from the parking spot from where you can see this amazing land form. One could always come here to gaze at the stars on a clear night and the sound of the sea water hitting the pebbles on the shore is more than serene.

About Dorset

The Famous Five are legendary. I may sound biased, but that's alright because, it were these Famous Five who inspired me and many like me, to travel and seek adventure. The first book published under Enid Blyton's Famous Five was Five On A Treasure Island, set on Kirren Island where five friends and a dog explore a castle's ruins. Kirren Island was actually inspired by Dorset where Enid Blyton holidayed thrice a year. Dorset is a county in South West England with the panorama of hanging cliffs and pretty beach sides.
