Isle of Portland

Coast in Portland

Portland is a small island on the south coast of Dorset that is accessed via a causeway that, on one side, is a busy road but on the other the famous Chisel beach, a long sandy beach that featured in a famous film (“On Chesil Beach”).

Portland Bill

The island has a number of small villages but worth a visit is “Portland Bill” which is a lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. Visitors to Bill should note that there is a charge for parking here and there is a small museum, café and gift shop but best is to go for a walk along the spectacular rocky coastline.
