“No Dogs allowed!!!”
Review of Weymouth Beach

Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

We used to love coming to this beach in the school holidays. However this year our dog is not welcome. Very disappointing.

Dog are banned from the 1st April.

The beach is a mixture of shingle and sand. The tide goes out A long way revealing more sand. There is a long promenade approximately 2.5 miles.
Interesting the promenade was more busy than the beach.
Parking can be found out at Lodmoor country park £1 hour.

I wonder how much revenue the local council and businesses are going to lose with the new doggy rules.

We will not be visiting Weymouth again.

Thank Gelldorr

Great sandy beach stretching along the whole of Weymouth front. Perfect for sand castle building. Water at low tide appeared to be quite shallow, perfect for a paddle (albeit cold in March!!)

There are loads of cafes, restaurants etc. along the front and a also a street or two back along with various high street shops

Views along the coast towards Lulworth Cove can also be seen

There aren’t many places where the boyfriend and I can have a good old roll’n’ stroll along the seafront to burn some calories off before our big afternoon tea, but Weymouth seafront, thankfully, is one of them.

The entire length of pavement along the bay is pretty flat, laid with tarmac and step-free. The wheelchair users’ smelliest enemy - dog poop, was duly spotted and carefully avoided. There was only one lot thankfully. The rest of the pavement was very clean and the rubbish bins clean and not overflowing. The head wind was an issue at times, so was the fact we are both middle-aged and perpetually achy, but we can’t hold Weymouth personally responsible for those things can we?

We parked at the Seacat terminal, where there are a good number of disabled parking bays. Please note: disabled parking is chargeable here, but (and I didn’t spot this until afterwards) blue badge holders get an extra hour of parking on top of their stated ticket expiry time for free. Street parking along the seafront appeared to be free for blue badge holders, but the kerbs can be high, so bear in mind you might have to get out of your car into the road and find a dropped kerb somewhere else to get onto the pavement if you are a wheelchair user.

We look forward to visiting again in the summer and seeing the sand sculpture exhibits when they fully open up after Easter, but even in Winter, we had a great day out.
