Planning a trip to the Dorset coast and looking for where the nearest Dorset beach is, our UK beach lists and beach search will help you discover the nearest beach to me. Then for each Dorset beach, we will answer questions around location, rural or town, sandy or pebble, rockpools, tide times, weather forecast, dog restrictions, bathing water quality, closest beach cafes and provide general information on the beach, its facilities and the surrounding area.
When on a beach page use our tools to expand your search to nearby seaside villages, towns and the surrounding Dorset coast for things to see and do or places to eat.
Have a dog? Finding a dog-friendly beach can be hard work and our dog-friendly beach lists will help direct you to the best locations allowing dogs.
