Shared private access to a gently shelving beach, means that a quick dip or early morning swim is a distinct possibility.
At Bowleaze, the golden sands of Weymouth Bay have merged to shingle, but there is still sufficient sand near the shoreline for children to dig.
It is a pleasant stroll along the sea wall to the Sea Life Centre and in season, a land train will complete the trip into Weymouth itself.
Nearby, Cafe Oasis runs a simple menu by day and transforms into a popular restaurant by night. There are local shops across the road, to cater for most necessities and The Spyglass just up the hill makes a convenient 'local' with a reasonable menu and carvery.
Further along the beach, The Riviera Hotel at Bowleaze has a gymnasium and swimming pool (permits usually available) and there are lively pastimes in the cove itself.
