The profile of Chesil beach has changed a lot over the winter due to the fierce storms that raged throughout January and February. Tons of pebbles have gone and the sea walls damaged. There is no sand here and swimming in the sea can be dangerous due to under currents, it's best to see where the locals are swimming. There... More

We visited this stunning beach with our 3 boys (8y, 5y, 3y) on a beatiful sunny April morning. The children loved playing in, on and under the pebbles and spent ages just rolling down the deep ridges teh stones create. It was blowy but very romatnic and would have been a great spot for a walk and a picnic later... More

What's not to like about the natural beauty of this place. Wonderful beach. Great for children at West Bay and for those who like endless unspoilt natural beauty.

Lovely beach which was nice and peaceful, great for kids who can throw small pebbles into the sea for hours without boredom!

Fascinating and stunning. You can sit and watch the beach change every 5 minutes, it is truly a wonder to behold, I was mesmerized. I had to keep reminding myself of how old the hotels and area were and how many ladies and gentlemen walked the same path as us many, many years ago in their finery

Spent an about an hour wondering on the pebble beach with friends and children. It is a lovely place to be. It is hard going walking along but worth it! Be warned the children wanted to collect half the pebbles to take home! Being the end of March it was very windy but this did not detract from the beauty... More

An 18 mile long pebble beach. Unspoilt and with beautiful views. My favourite place is where Chesil Beach meets Portland, Chesil Cove. It is great for scuba diving too.

Stones washing up by the sea, swishing and swashing with the tide, never stopping never still, chesil is in constant motion, sit awhile and take in its beauty of this wonder.

Majestic and awe-inspiring in both summer and winter. There really is no way of adequately describing its splendour.......go there, see it, breathe it, feel it.
