West Bay, Dorset…West Bay is situated along Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. The Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site, 96 miles in length that stretches from Studland, Dorset to Exmouth, Devon. The site covers 185 million years of geological history and features rock formations such as arches, sea stacks and pinnacles as well as coves and the possibility of finding fossils. (See my Lyme Regis post here for more fossil info). West Bay itself is only about 1.5 miles from the market town of Bridport and features two fine shingle beaches. It is a great place to set up camp for a family holiday as it is easy to maneuver around the area when visiting the local sights. Activity wise, West Bay has plenty of walking opportunities along the cliff path and to Golden Cap, one of the highest points along the cliff line or to play a round of links golf along the cliffs. There are also opportunities for great fishing trips whether it is out in the sea for mackerel or crab or fishing from the new Jurassic Jetty. Food, such as locally caught seafood or fish and chips can be found in the pubs, the restaurants and the outdoor food carts in the summer…

Fun Tip: Make time to visit some of the towns and/or villages a little more inland…Beaminster, Broadwindsor, Netherbury…
