Chesil Bank (Chesil Beach), Weymouth
(4.5/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Chesil Bank (Chesil Beach) is one of the most beautiful sites to explore in Dorset, where you can experience a picturesque English coastline. This stretch along the water is covered in pebbles, and although the weather can become quite stormy, some tourists say this is the best time to visit. For much of its length, the beach is separated from the mainland by an area of saline water called the Fleet Lagoon. You can also stroll to the eastern end of the beach to find the village of Chiswell. Here, against the cliffs of the Isle of Portland, stop to check out the small shops and cafes. The beach is also part of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the location for a 2007 novel, "On Chesil Beach" by Ian McEwan.
