It is a breathtaking stretch of shingle with some amazing stones which are not to be removed. Beware on a windy day when nature reveals the power of the wind and the hazards of living close by.

We were lucky with late autumn sunshine, but always lovely (if a little hard on the lags!), A beautiful and interesting beach area.

It's worth a look but the signpost travelling from Abotsbury can be missed.It's a geographical importance on the Jurassic coastline and have lovely views if climb up onto the southwest coastal path.

Before setting foot on the beach, I would suggest if possible a trip up to the viewing area on Portland Bill, where you can get some sense of the sheer size of the beach. Judging by the photos already posted, turning up around sunset is a great time, as middle of the day is not the best time for photos.... More

We would have wanted to walk much further but winds stopped us, very interesting and goes on for miles. Car park and cafe just there and cheap to park up.

Wear solid shoes as the beach is all shingle & not much fun in flip flops ! The beach just stretches as far as the eye can sea, a fabulous landmark. A must for fishing people.
