About the beach

Weymouth is an award-winning sandy beach overlooked by a magnificent Georgian seafront, located at the heart of the Jurassic Coastline. This sheltered bay has a gradually sloping seabed and clean waters for swimming and water sports, making it an ideal destination for families and visitors of every age. Alongside a wide range of catering outlets, there are traditional attractions including pedalo boats and a land train, as well as impressive sand sculptures during the summer months.

Weymouth’s thriving shopping area is just a short stroll from the award-winning beach, while the nearby historic harbour is overlooked by quaint restaurants, cafes, craft shops and beautiful pastel-coloured houses. The beach also hosts regular events, including festivals, sporting occasions and firework displays.
