Weymouth was developed as a resort by the Georgians and has also been a successful port and fishing harbour, so there is a good range of facilities, both practical and frivolous. If you tire of town, the South West Coast Path passes the marina.
A mooch around in Weymouth Bay is a lovely way to spend an afternoon, admiring the white cliffs of Purbeck and the green hills of Dorset. Famous anchorages east along the Jurassic Coast include the perfect horseshoe of Lulworth Cove and the more open bays at Chapman's Pool and Worbarrow Bay.
A short walk from all the entertainment, attractions and picturesque harbourside, you can really get away from it all.
