B-line for Weymouth to get a feel for the beach element of the county. This small town on the coast has become identifiable by its rows of colourful beach huts. One of its most beautiful beaches is Weymouth Beach in Weymouth Bay, which is a highly popular spot for sunbathing and swimming during the Summer. Weymouth is a part of the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site that spans from East Devon’s Exmouth to Dorset’s Studland Bay.

The Melbury Downs are an exquisite place to go walking, whether it’s walking around the countryside surrounding St Thomas’ Church, or hiking to the peak of the Melbury Beacon atop Melbury Hill.

Alternatively, head to the far side of the coast from the likes of Weymouth and you’ll find Studland and Godlingston Heath National Nature Reserve. It is on the Isle of Purbeck and is perfect for casual beach strolls, a liberating, brisk sea breeze and views to write home about.
