Beautiful, clean and friendly. Various places to sit and watch the world go by, huts to grab a bite to eat from and friendly local pubs. What I call my happy place 😀

A great place to watch the world go by. I expect it's too busy for our taste in peak season. Spectacular cliff view. Recommend a boat trip to view the coast line.

Nice place to visit to relax in the sun. Not much to do on a wet day, but if you want to sit and do nothing this is the place.

The village was cute and good for a pastie. Not great at low tide due to to the smell of the harbour. Lots of development going on but lovely little stalls around the harbour

Not the most beautiful spot on the south coast but has a character which is quite unique. Small working harbour with all the amenities needed for a pleasant visit and after all the work is finished should be even better.

There is a large play area at beside the first car park when entering West Bay on the left. If you are there at the end of August there is an annual 'fare ground amusement' field.
