In this 'you may also like' section we attempt to answer what else can I do? Here you have a list by order of being the closest some more beaches, things to see and do, places to eat and upcoming events.
- Chesil Bank is not a beach to laze around playing in the sand, it is around 18 miles long, shingle and pebbles separated from the mainland by the Fleet, a shallow tidal lagoon. This marks the southerly point of the Jurassic Coast and the pebbles get larger from west to east as a result of tides. This area of coast was notorious for shipwrecks but now you will see beach fisherman, rare plants and nesting birds. The semi-salty fleet lagoon is warmer in summer and colder in winter than the surrounding area and supports a wide selection of bird species and aquatic plants. Towards the west you have the 16th century village of Abbotsbury and on the east end you have Portland, famed for its naval base and quarries. Parking at Abbotsbury and Chesil beach visitor centre with Abbotsbury to the West being the place for cream teas. Between March and end of August walking is not permitted between Abbotsbury and the visitor centre due to the protection of nesting birds. Due to the location the sea has a very strong undertows and swimming is NOT recommended.
- Sandsfoot Castle beach within Portland Harbour, also known as Southlands beach is sand and rocks. This is a small private beach with a rocky backdrop on one side and low cliff on the other. Slipway and limited parking available on the road.
- Beach: Chesil Beach View: Situated right on the beach overlooking the Portland coast What’s on the menu?: Specialising in all types of seafood, particularly locally caught, this is an award-winning café which many think is a hidden gem for the south coast.
- Castle Cove beach in Portland Harbour is just a five minute walk from Weymouth Town Centre. The beach is sand, rockpools and seaweed and is so different from the golden sand of Weymouth’s main beach. Cafe offers hot and cold snacks, ice creams, homemade cakes and is fully licensed.
- Newton’s Cove is a small cove between the main Weymouth beach and Portland Harbour, next to the Nothe Fort. The cove is a mix of sand, shingle and rock pools. No facilities at the beach although car park, toilets and cafe near the entrance to the Nothe Fort. After parking, you can walk through Nothe Gardens to the promenade and along to the beach at Newton’s Cove.
- Weymouth beach with its golden sands is one of the best family beaches along the South Coast. The long curving bay makes Weymouth Dorset’s main holiday town. The main beach is within the town boundaries and backed by elegant Georgian terraces. Weymouth was a small fishing village until King George III visited in 1789 and kept coming back to get the sea air. Don’t worry it is not all old as Weymouth has been updating itself whilst keeping the character, there’s something for everyone in Weymouth and on Weymouth Beach. During the summer months lifeguards patrol, Punch and Judy to amuse the children, donkeys, and the famous sand modeller still amazes the crowds with his original creations. Swingboats,, trampolines, carousels and a helter skelter add to the colourful scene and snacks, ice creams and all manner of shops, cafe and restaurants
