Seacombe Cliff is a small rocky cove of wave-cut platforms, which the sea has eroded to form a few deep and narrow rocky inlets. The high cliffs to either side are of Portland limestone, and make this a good sun-trap. It's popular for swimming and snorkelling and dogs are allowed at all times. Access is a walk of about ¾ mile along good public footpaths from Worth Matravers, with a descent of about 400 feet. Car parking with toilets ♿ can be found at Worth Matravers (Grid Ref : SY974776 / Lat : 50.5981°N, Lon : 2.0381°W). The village also has a pub / restaurant (The Square and Compass).
On 6th January 1786, the Halsewell en route to Bengal ran into a gale and was wrecked on the rocks about 400 yards to the west with considerable loss of life.
