Things to do at Chesil Beach Review

Chesil Beach, a distinct natural landmark, extends 18 miles along the Dorset Coast. The ‘Chesil Sorting’ features 180 billion stones of varying sizes, from tiny ones in West Bay to massive pebbles at Portland.

This beach, part of the UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast, provides panoramic views of the Fleet Lagoon and the English Channel. The Fleet Lagoon, separating the beach from the mainland, is a vital habitat for wildlife.

For an insight into the area’s history, visit the Chesil Beach Centre, which offers exhibits, a gift shop, and the Taste CafĂ© with locally sourced food.

Remember to respect the beach’s delicate ecosystem by not removing pebbles. When planning your visit, consider the weather, bring binoculars for birdwatching, and wear sturdy shoes for the pebbled paths.

Swimming isn’t recommended at Chesil Beach.
