We never tire of walking along the bank or along the inner harbour beach - there is so much to see. The seaward side of the bank changes shape after every high tide, and is more noticeable after strong winds. On the inner harbour side...More

We drove to the viewing point through Portland. There's a good car park at the top with an ice cream van but a small cafe/tea stall would be useful. Chesil Beach is certainly an amazing thing to see and i suspect it would be interesting...More

Make sure you drive onto Portland and go up the hill to the free viewing point and car park. What a superb view of Chesil Beach.

There are plenty of parking places and a lovely cafe. As you walk over the bridge there is a place to get bags to keep the beach clean which is a great idea. The beach itself was amazing I have been on pebble beaches before...More

We were fortunate enough to be staying very near to the beach. Great for sun rises and sunsets! The kids loved throwing pebbles into the sea and chasing the waves. There were always lots of Fisher men on the beach. It's clean and vast and...More
