Dancing Ledge is part of the Jurassic Coast a few miles west from Swanage, near Langton Matravers. Dancing Ledge is a flat area of rock at the base of a small cliff.
Dancing Ledge is so called because at certain stages of the tide when the waves wash over the horizontal rocks, the surface undulations cause the water to bob about making the ledge appear to dance.
The area was used for quarrying of Purbeck stone and the ledge is a straight drop off into the sea which is deep enough for small ships to come right up to the ledge.
Now it is a popular site for Coasteering and Moonfleet visits Dancing Ledge as part of our 'Walk the Plank' Sailing and Coasteering activity run jointly with Cumulus Outdoors. Check out the 'Groups' tab for more details!
