We passed this interesting secluded cove as we walked around the island as part of our SWCP adventure. Lots of cabins but still a tranquil place to get away from things.

What an absolutely lovely tranquil place with stunning views of the coast, cove and surrounding area. The steps down are steep and not for the faint hearted. There are no real sign posts to the derelict church which can be found 2/3rds of the way...More

There is parking above the cove then it is sadly a bit of a windy trek down to the beach. However this is a very picturesque walk including the ruins of a 'Pirate' church. The beach is stoney with a smattering of sand exposed at...More

Discovered this cove by chance on a circular coastal walk of the Isle of Portland. It was a very sunny day and the Cove was very tempting to give up on our walk and take it easy. The cove is very pebbly and steep to...More
