Beach and Harbour in Weymouth

If you’re seeking seaside fun by the bucket load, Weymouth’s award-winning beach and vibrant harbour offers you just that!

The golden sands of Weymouth's stunning beach will take your breath away. Take time to sit back and admire the view or if you're looking for something to entertain the kids, there's a traditional Punch & Judy show and donkey rides during the summer season. 

The beach is also home to some international sporting events! 

Just steps away, the quaint, colourful harbourside offers gift shops, alfresco dining, crabbing, antique emporiums and award-winning fish and chips.

Weymouth Beach also regularly features in the top 20 in TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards for best beach in Europe!  So why not grab your towel and head to the beach this summer! Just remember to bring your suncream!

Sun, sand and sea

Weymouth Beach really does offer time-honoured seaside fun for everyone, whether you’re aged 8 months or 80 years!

Shriek with laughter at Punch & Judy, bounce high on the trampolines, have fun on the donkeys and children’s rides or visit fantastic attractions such as the Sea Life Adventure Park.

There’s plenty to relax you too; wander along the wide, flat promenade, hire a pedalo or deckchair and enjoy a lazy lunch at one of the cafés on the esplanade.

At the pretty Greenhill Gardens you can treat yourself to an ice cream whilst listening to live entertainment before testing your skills on the tennis court or putting green.

If you're out on the water, the views from Weymouth Bay are spectacular, taking in the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.

Blue Flag and Seaside Award

We think Weymouth beach is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches, but you don't just have to our word for it! 

Weymouth beach has been awarded the Blue Flag and Seaside Award recognising it as one of the safest, cleanest and very best in the country. Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy announced Weymouth Beach as one of over 70 beaches in England to have won a coveted Blue Flag and Seaside Award.

To be considered for the awards, beaches must meet the highest environmental standards, as well as the tough international bathing water quality standards.

Sit and watch the world go by at Weymouth Harbour

Situated at the heart of the town is Weymouth’s bustling harbour where you can sit and watch the boats come and go and see the historic bridge lifting.
