Chesil Beach

Chesil Beach is a shingle barrier ridge at the eastern end of Lyme Bay, extending 18 miles from Burton Bradstock to Fortuneswell on Portland. As far as Abbotsbury it is attached to the land, but beyond that the lagoon of The Fleet separates it from land, until it runs head-on into Portland. One can walk on the beach at Burton Bradstock, where there is a visitor centre, and get fine views from the coast road, the B3157, on the heights of White Hill just west of Abbotsbury, where there is a lay-by.

Purbeck Hills and Walks

The Purbeck Hills and South Dorset Downs are a ridge of chalk downs in Dorset, England. The hills extend from the Dorset Downs west of Dorchester, where the River Frome begins to form a valley dividing them from the larger area of downland to the north. The ridge then runs east through the Isle of Purbeck to Old Harry Rocks where it meets the sea. There are a number of Iron Age, Roman and Saxon archaeological sites, such as Nine Barrow Down.

 

The Blue Pool

Poole Harbour

Poole Harbour is the second largest natural harbour in the world, with the towns of Poole and Wareham on its shores. The harbour is a drowned valley formed at the end of the last ice age and is the estuary of several rivers, the largest being the Frome. The harbour has a long history of human settlement stretching to pre-Roman times. The harbour is extremely shallow (average depth: 48cm), which makes it an ideal site for water sports.
