Depending on where you want to start you can either turn from the A353 towards the Smugglers Inn (brown sign posted) or towards Ringstead (brown sign-posted as Beach and Cafe). Parking at the Smugglers can be difficult in summer and at weekends but you can reclaim the cost of parking in the pub against purchases. There is more parking at Ringstead but it costs £5.00 (in 2016) rregardless of how long you intend to stay.
