Attraction Information

Looking for an iconic beach trip? Chesil Beach in Dorset stretches out for over 18 miles, and as you make your way along, you’ll soon be surrounded by the sea on one side, and the Fleet Lagoon on the other, it’s truly a remarkable experience. Plus, you walk along you can watch the pebbles turn from almost potato sized to tiny pea sized! The walk along the beach is long and can be tricky at times, so the youngest explorers among us may find it challenging.

  • Fantastic views 
  • Unique beach experience
  • Loads of nature and wildlife to spot on the way 

Please note,  swimming is not advised, as there is a very strong undercurrent
