“Amazing Views”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I always look forward to visiting Weymouth and have to take a drive out to Chesil Beach. There is a new visitor centre with excellent parking on the causeway which is worth a visit. The views from the top of the shingle bank are always worth the walk.

Drive further onto Portaland and stop at the parking near the hotel, walk back and look down on Chesil from above - it is a very impressive structure and the view of the bay on the other side of the causeway is also worth seeing.

“Awesome!!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

A fantastic beach to sit and let the world go by,
have been here on a scorcher of a day and just led on the warm pebbles sunbathing,it is so relaxing and breathtaking and a completely different feel to the hustle and bustle of weymouth beach(which is also lovely by the way)
and have watched the sunset here and it is just beautiful.
This place really is a wonderful vision of nature.
