Stunning location for coastal walks, beach and swimming. Lots of pebbles so recommend beach/diving shoes. Fantastic limestone quarry converted into sculpture park nearby with great coastal walks and views. Super cafe/bar nearby called Quiddles!

The portland stone quarry sculture park is fabulous and free! Wear good walking shoes though. Portland Bill is very dramatic and well worth a visit.
