Weymouth is one of Dorset's most popular beaches. The crescent-shaped sandy shore is backed by a sea wall and esplanade, and the facilities and shops of Weymouth town are just a short walk away. The town itself sits on a narrow peninsula between the sea and the harbour. The bay is generally safe for swimming, and lifeguards patrol in summer. Dog restrictions apply from Good Friday until October 31st on the main beach. Facilities and attractions include Punch & Judy shows, deckchair hire, donkey rides, pedalo hire and toilets ♿. The town has an excellent range of shops, stores, bars and cafes and frequently hosts major events. Weekly firework displays take place during the late summer evenings. The RSPB's Radipole reserve is just a short distance away.

There are some P&D car parks in the town, but congestion and long traffic jams are inevitable during peak times. Weymouth rail station is just a 5-minute walk from the beach, and it's often a good idea to park (free) at Upwey station (one stop back up the line), and either take the train or walk across Littlemoor Down. Time it right, and this can be quicker, easier and cheaper than driving into the town.
