The Boardwalk - Out and About

West Bay lies south of Bridport, between Lyme Regis to the west and Weymouth to the east.  The fishing harbour is situated at the western end of Chesil Beach and the area forms part of the Dorset Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. West Bay is a wonderful seaside location for family holidays with coastal walks, fossil hunting, fishing ,white water riding, scuba diving and golfing all on the doorstep.

The bustling market town of Bridport is about a mile away with many small independent retailers, restaurants, pubs and tea shops. As well as a number of supermarkets, it has a thriving street market on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

Further afield to the east, is Weymouth, with it's Georgeon seafront, historical buildings and a bustling town centre. This is complemented by quaint side streets with traditional pubs, contemporary bars, cafés and restaurants. Weymouth's picturesque harbour boasts many little shops specialisiing in gifts and craftware.

To the west is Lyme Regis, a beautiful seaside resort approximately 9 miles from West Bay. Walk along the famous Cobb harbour or visit the many small boutique shops each side of the steep main street that runs through the town. Recent renovations to the promenade and public gardens have really made Lyme Regis a lovely place to visit.
