Chesil beach is a wonderful coast line and see defence. You can walk for miles, along the fleet where Barnes Wallace tested his bouncing bombs, or where pirates came ashore. A nice stroll in the winter to blow the cobs or in the summer to see spectacular sun sets. This is somewhere for couples or families

An absolute wonder. Make sure you walk as far as you can to see the pebbles change in size and colour.

Chesil Beach is always a winner whatever the weather. The sound of the waves and the moving stones is brilliant.

There is no other word for this amazing cove. Walk along the beach, have a pint or a coffee, watch the waves and listen to the pebbles drag back down the beach with a grinding sound that moves the very soul

A little cafe on the car park and a handy wooden walkway down a steeply shelved pebble beach that stretches out for seemingly miles, looking out over the evening sun, solitary and beautiful with crashing breakers and a line of contented fishermen. Quiet and tranquil, timeless and unspoilt - a place to relax, to be without distraction - somewhere we... More
