Weymouth Beach (Weymouth) ... is a popular destination for sea bathing, and was frequented by King George III during times of illness. The king named Weymouth his 'first resort' and made bathing fashionable there. Weymouth Beach is very wide and gently sloping, with golden sand and shallow waters normally with small waves. In addition to bathing, the expansive beach is used for beach motocross and volleyball — the International Volleyball Championships regularly use Weymouth Beach as a venue for the sport.
Newest Review: ... safe for paddling and bathing - there are no sand bars or sudden drop away places, it is fairly shallow for quite a long way and slopes out to sea very gently. There is a traditional Punch and Judy show (which personally I have always hated!), donkey rides, trampolines, swing boats and pedaloes for hire, many people also bring balls and Frisbees down to the beach for a chuck about, though in ... more

Weymouth Beach is the jewel in the crown of this lovely tourist town. The beach is wide and stretches from the Pavilion at one end to Bowleaze Cove at the other end. The Pavilion end is sandy and this turns to shingle the further down you walk. The sea water is clear and clean, and the water is very safe for paddling and bathing - there are no sand bars or sudden drop away places, it is fairly shallow for quite a long way and slopes out to sea very gently. There is a traditional Punch and Judy show (which personally I have always hated!), donkey rides, trampolines, swing boats and pedaloes for hire, many people also bring balls and Frisbees down ...

Weymouth is a very quaint old tourist town situated in the south west of England in which I have lived most of my life. It's a town that relies heavily upon its tourism trade for employment which is usually very good in the summer months due to its long stretch of main beach with many little private beaches dotted in and around the outskirts of the town as well as its healthy reputation as a holidaying resort. Having spent six months lucky enough to go travelling around Australia I was privy to some of the finest beaches in the world including the very famous Bondi beach and I can honestly say with hand on heart that Weymouth beach looks very much the same except without Read the complete review

Weymouth has been my home all my life but having spent the last 4 years away at University this has enabled me to have the advantageous perspectives of both visitor and local. Weymouth is a great seaside town with a pretty decent selection of shops (apart from mens clothing grr!), some very nice restaurants and a nightlife that can often rival bigger cities such as Bournemouth. The beach is the largest jewel in the crown of Weymouth and, without it, King George the Third wouldn't have visited it all those years ago and injected a huge industry of tourism into the town. The Weymouth I know and love today would be completely different if it didn't have its ... Read the complete review

Weymouth itself is a nice holiday resort,but the beach is what makes weymouth so special. Weymouth's wide and shallow sandy beach is used for swimming and sunbathing during the tourist season,and for beach sport events throughout the year.The international kite festival, held in May each year on Weymouth Beach, attracts thousands of people from around the world. Weymouth is situated in south west Dorset.And the arch shaped beach is a wonderful relaxing place.The sands are always nice and clean and soft.Attractions on this beach near the peir consist of a show with punch and Judy,an old time favourite even with children now.Donkey rides are available ...
