Many of the paths around Portland Bill are accessible for powered wheelchair users and rugged pushchairs. The first ½ mile of this route follows a level wide path, but after this becomes more varied with some steep and uneven sections before reaching Church Ope Cove. From the cove to Portland Heights the path is relatively level apart from one steep climb. « less

The same sea that carved the soft rock into caves and arches also polished the vertical cliffs to a dazzling white. There are far-ranging views over Swanage in one direction and Wareham and Bournemouth in the other. There are some long but gentle climbs and descents. « less
