Weymouth Bay, Dorset
Weymouth bay was recently chosen to be the bay of choice for the amazing sailing competition as part of the London 2012 Olympics and it is not hard to see why. This beautiful bay has often been referred to as ‘England’s Bay of Naples’ due to its beautiful scenic coastline, cliffs and rolling hills in the distance. Coupled with its soft golden sands and safe bathing waters, it is hard to find anywhere in the UK quite like it. It remains largely unspoilt and makes for a great family trip out whatever the weather. For further information visit www.weymouth-dorset.co.uk/beach.html
