Bac Lava: Disabled access would be possible (but not easy) with some help, to this spectacular circular cove set behind cliffs on the English Channel. From the car park follow the road down to the ramp and few concrete steps which lead to the beach.
The beach is made of large stones and access to the water is easy. The cove is about 300m diameter and is used as a harbour, so there are always a few sailing boats at anchor.
The water here is much more sheltered than at Durdle Door or Man o' War bay but access is easier and there are toilets and a cafe nearby and there are Speedboat rides from the cove.
Tim Havenith: A really enjoyable swim with epic scenery all around. The entrance of the cove is mesmerising as all you can see are the waves of the open ocean.
Parking is available nearby, but can get very busy. There is a short walk from the car park to the cove itself.
As you swim out to the entrance of the cove there is a large patch of seaweed on the west side of the cove.
I also found that there are a couple of large rocks a foot or so under the surface of the water on the west side of the cove near the beach.
Also be aware that while the water of the cove is quite tame near the beach, as you get closer to the open water the waves get move powerful.
Alex Evershead Willatt: Most people swim from the right hand side of the Cove but this is the coldest part - the stream joins the cove here. It's no dogs on the right side either.
I usually head around to the left its quieter too.
