Arrived in car park £2.00 for 2hours. It was high tide an hour previous. Walking up the slope I knew the view but still breath taking all the same. Pebbles are everywhere we had a lovely slow walk this is a beautiful area.

Walk along a bit, the views are well worth it. The stones are all the same size so they're quite easy to walk on. The car park and visitor centre are the best place to start your trip.

Quite well signposted so easy to get to. If the weather's good it makes for a nice walk, you can see the Isle of Portland as well as Weymouth.

Chesil beach is gorgeous, the ocean is deep and blue, the sunrise and sunset would be phenomenal here. Great for fishing. Worth a visit!

The amazing Chesil Beach, a place to walk and wonder at, perhaps find an odd shaped stone for a souvenir....amazing photos to be had too, though remember to wear suitable footwear if you are intending to walk on there!

This is a pebble beach, and walking along it is rather boring and more arduous than general walking. However, if you climb up, one can have very nice views of the see and the pebble beach, as well as the not particularly nice town.

Sorry, No Idea. I suggest you contact the Aqua Hotel. We stayed there and it seems that it is a hub for Divers. The staff were really helpful for us. Tel 01305 860 269. Post Code DT5 1BT.
