New Cafe, Beach Office & Toilets

We have re-developed the catering facility at Durley Chine to enhance the look and feel of the area, offer visitors greater choice and provide a convenient location for public facilities.

Whatever the weather or time of year, beach visitors will be able to enjoy quality food from a striking glass-fronted cafe on the beachfront which offers inside seating for the first time. There is also a beach-side seating area on the promenade and a sheltered first floor terrace with magnificent sea views across to Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight.

The development includes the provision of a purpose-built beach office and new public toilets in a prominent position at the entrance of the Chine.

Beach visitors are encouraged to cycle to Durley Chine with the provision of an additional 28 cycle spaces. Disabled visitors can park in the nearby disabled parking bays with level access to the restaurant and a platform lift to the roof terrace.

The regeneration at Durley Chine is part of our Seafront Strategy to create a world class seafront.

The work has been carried out by our building maintenance team.
