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

Going to Chesil Beach is a must if you come to Weymouth....it is an amazing view and a great walk. Not for those who don't like walking...but when you see the views worth every minute. Have a sandwich/cup of tea/glass of wine & Taste to relax afterwards.

Fantastic place to visit, especially if you want the cob webs blowing away. Clean beach and fantastic views, spent ages just looking and taking it all in. There is a nice cafe there, just off the main road to Portland Bill.

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