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.
- Church Ope Cove beach is a pebble beach with a small stream on the eastern side of Portland and as the tide goes out you have a number of rock pools and some sand. The beach is sheltered as it has cliffs on three sides. Popular diving location to access the many wrecks off Portland. Facilities include car parking a short walk away, toilets and cafe nearby. Parking is a little way away and the route to the beach involves a walk through a wood, graveyard and then down stone steps.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Portland Bill and Chesil Beach are the graveyards of many vessels that failed to reach Weymouth or Portland Roads. The Portland Race is caused by the meeting of the tides between the Bill and the Shambles sandbank about 3 miles SE. Strong currents break the sea so fiercely that from the shore a continuous disturbance can be seen. Portland Bill Lighthouse guides vessels heading for Portland and Weymouth through these hazardous waters as well as acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel. The Shambles sandbank is marked by a red sector light. Lighthouse has a visitor centre.
- 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.
- Nothe Fort is at the entrance to Weymouth Harbour, constructed on three levels, with lift access, the Fort is filled with displays, guns and display areas that describe the history of this Victorian Fort. The Fort is a labyrinth of underground passageways and outdoor areas with stunning views of the coast.
- Weymouth Pier is approached by a rather long pathway that runs around the edge of the ferry terminal. The pier itself is split into two, a commercial ferry terminal and public areas. Entertainment includes an amusement arcade situated in the rebuilt theatre. The pier is a popular location for sea fishing.
