  • Information

    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.

    Church Ope Cove Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Church Ope Cove Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
