The local bay is sheltered by the Isle of Portland, with the town’s beach perfect for lazy days in the sunshine. There are plenty of waterfront attractions to enjoy, while a stroll along the coast will take you to Weymouth Harbour, Nothe Fort and Sandsfoot Castle one way, and Bowleaze Cove the other.
This is where you’ll find the exciting Fantasy Island amusement park, perfect for the kids but also great for older ages. From go-karting to mini-golf and outdoor pursuits at Osmington Bay Centre, you can also head further from town to explore the West Dorset Heritage Coast and the rest of the beautiful Dorset AONB.
