Bat's Head is a chalk headland on the Dorset coast in southern England, located between Swyre Head and Durdle Door to the east, and Chaldon Hill and White Nothe to the west.[1][2]

There is a small but very visible cave at the base of the headland known as Bat's Cave. A spectacular path, part of the South West Coast Path, runs along the coast through rolling green downland countryside to the north of Bat's Head.
