For the best views of Chesil Beach either drive up into Portland and go up the hill but turn left at the roundabout by the Portland Heights Hotel; from there you can park up and see panoramic views across the beach, Weymouth and the bay. On a clear day you can see as far west as Torquay. Alternatively drive east... More

A really unique beach with great scenery, the whole area including Portland is fascinating and as we saw it on a sunny day it was quite spectacular. From Portland you can look down upon the beach and it really is a magnificent view!

Great weather, windy so the waves were good. Great fun walking over the beach to see the waves the sound is amazing on the shingle. Toddler very happy playing with all the stones. Good exhibitions in the cafe too to round off the experience

Very good however after the early 2014 storm it's not as nice- most of the stones got washed away but the sea view is still nice and it's still an ok swimming area- nice pub on the beach too!!!

Always a firm favourite for a brisk, non commercialised walk along this very stoney beach. Kids love throwing stones in the sea & scrambling up the slopes.

Visited the day after the major storm had sounded the flood alarms, still very stormy so not on the beach for long. Visitor Centre has lots to do and explore for children and the cafe they have there is excellent

Best place to view this wonderful thing is from the old stone quarries on Portland. We went to the sculpture quarry which is itself a great experience

Chessil bank is a place to walk and feel the natural world in all of it's glory, kids love searching through the stones looking at the colours and patterns in the smooth pebbles. The water of the bank is incredibly dangerous and you must keep the children away from the waters edge. Highly recommend watching the. Sun go down, fantastic... More
