Stunning beaches abound - some with Blue Flags! most with car parking nearby.
Bowleaze Cove - is located on the northeast side of Weymouth Bay. At low tide patches of sand and a number of rockpools become visible. On the beach you will find great views over the Jurassic coastline towards Weymouth. Facilities include a café and gift shop and a nearby pub. During the summer season a funfair operates next to the beach and there is a car boot sale on in the beach car park.
Portland Harbour - Castle Cove is a spit beach just like the neighbouring Chesil Beach starting at the ruins of Castleton Castle.
Greenhill Beach - offers every bit as much as Weymouth’s main sandy beach yet is nearly always far quieter and relaxing. Backed by a promenade which actually forms a section of the South West Coast Path. There are some lovely beach huts along the promenade. One of the best things about this beach are the Greenhill Gardens area which lies immediately behind the beach. The gardens here have some beautifully kept colourful border.
Chesil Beach - Stretching nearly 17 miles from Portland to West Bay the beach is comprised of a huge bank of pebbles. The eastern portion of the Chesil bank backs onto Fleet Lagoon, which is where Barnes Wallis’s bouncing bomb, as used by the Dambusters in World War II, was tested. These days the Fleet is an important conservation area and unique habitat.
Weymouth Beach – a long curving arc of golden sand adjacent to the town centre. All the family favourites you would expect from a traditional seaside beach including donkey rides to Punch and Judy shows. The waters are ideal for swimming and having fun in the sea. Windbreaks and deckchairs can be hired, and there are plenty of food choices. Weymouth Pier is at the southern end and a miniature train sometimes runs.
