DISCOVER THE AREA DURING YOUR STAY AT WEYMOUTH BEACH B AND B …
Weymouth Portland & South Dorset
Weymouth’s popularity as a seaside resort is attributed to King George III who came to bathe in the sea as a health cure for his nervous disorder.The beach is superb and consists of sand which sweeps around the bay changing to shingle along the extended promenade. All the usual facilities are on hand, Punch & Judy, swing boats, trampolines, volleyball court and Weymouth’s famous sand modeller.
As one would expect of a coastal resort, water sports feature prominently in the list of activities. With excellent wind conditions all year round the waters of Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour are a Mecca for windsurfers and dinghy sailors, and divers come to the area to explore the wrecks lying around the coast. As one of the top angling venues in the country Weymouth offers all types of fishing, from the child’s rod dangled from the pier to deep sea fishing trips which can be booked from one of the charter boats in the harbour. Golf, cycling, walking, bowling, swimming, the list of opportunity for sport is endless. Attractions include the Sea Life Park’s themed marine displays reveal the fascinating habitats found beneath the waves and Sandworld an amazing international sand sculpting exhibition with hands on fun for kids and adults alike. For something very special why not take a look at the magnificent The Jurassic Coast from the top of Jurassic Skyline Weymouth’s fabulous 140m high observation tower.!
With a new shopping centre, lots of excellent places to eat and drink, a wide choice of accommodation and a year-round calendar of events it is little wonder that Weymouth is a town to which people return time and time again.
