Worbarrow Bay Beach

Worbarrow Bay beach is mainly pebbles with a little sand. The beach has a steep shelf and so swimmers will be in deep water very fast.

Popular anchorage for boats due to the steep shelf, meaning boats can come right into the bay and anchor a few metres from the beach.

No facilities and no parking, with the best parking option being to park at Tyneham car park and walk the last half mile.

Worbarrow Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
