I love Chesil beach so much! My family are from Weymouth so I know the area well! My mum wants her ashes scattered there when she dies – slightly morbid I know!

Well the fact that my aunt was conceived on this beach is one positive thing…maybe…But it is a stunning beach and has a lot of history to it.
It’s a lovely walk and a really interesting, especially if you take a moment to read about it before you take a walk on it.
I find it very peaceful, but please be careful to keep an eye on the tide, as in places it can cut you off.
Been here many times as a kid and loved it every time. now im older its still has not lost any of its charm. The 18 mile pebble beach is good to walk off a sunday lunch or just because you want a nice long walk.

Took a trip to Chesil Beach in October. Luckily it was when we had that really beautiful week. Chesil beach is beautiful and has an atmosphere all of its own. It’s like time has stood still. It’s a bit of a walk to reach the water but once there the sound of the sea hitting the pebbles is mesmerizing. The sun was low so managed to take some lovely pictures of the children in silhouette.
what a beautiful place although very windy at times and slight dangerous but fantastic views and brilliant walks! if your going back to chard take the scenic route its much advised you can follow chesil beach for miles in the car!!
This is more than a beach… it’s an 18-mile shingle bank that defines the Jurassic Coast, which is a World Heritage Site thanks to all the dinosaur fossils.
The day we were there the fishermen were pulling in what looked like mackerel by the bucket-load, and the sea was roughly and enthusiastically churning the pebbles along the coast.
There’s no easy way to get the scale of this feature except by bike (dodging cars along the main road) or driving to various towns along the way. An expert could tell from the pebbles in this photo that we were near Abbotsbury… further West the beaches get increasingly child-friendly, and further East the pebbles are the size of potatoes sheltering Weymouth from the storms.
