    Most dangerous places to take a selfie: Cliffs of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast


    Many of the views from Dorset’s dramatic and picturesque Jurassic Coast are, quite simply, breath-taking. With beautiful beaches, jaw-dropping cliffs and sparkling blue seas, they are the perfect setting for pictures of a memorable holiday or day out. Of course, no holiday album is complete without a number of selfie snaps. However, trying to strike the perfect pose on the stunning landscapes of the Jurassic Coast poses a number of risks to your personal safety.

    Avoiding accidents on the Jurassic Coast – slips, trips and falls

    Many of Dorset’s picture-perfect beaches wouldn’t look out of place in a brochure detailing the world’s best coastlines. The limestone and chalk cliffs of Lulworth Cove, stunning rock formations at Durdle Door and dramatic landscape of Burton Bradstock, where much of the recent smash hit television series Broadchurch was filmed, are particular highlights.

    Getting to the perfect spot to enjoy these spectacular views can be somewhat difficult and dangerous. Trip and fall accidents can occur all too easily, especially for those who are not prepared.

    One of the key elements to avoiding accidents on the Jurassic Coast is what you wear on your feet. Your shoes should provide you with plenty of grip, comfort and support, as well as being able to withstand significant amounts of walking. The best way to enjoy this remarkable coastline is to get out amongst it so leave the glamorous and smart shoes behind. Practicality is the order of the day.

    Visits to Durdle Door and Burton Bradstock require particularly close care and attention, as both have been the sites of numerous landslides over the years. Therefore, when constructing your selfie, stay well away from the edge of the cliffs. Numerous signs are around to warn you of the danger and there are also restricted walking areas on Burton Bradstock beach. Tragic holiday accidents have occurred here so pay attention to what the signs say and obey them.
