How to get here

Car

With the beach disconnected from the coast of Britain, it can only be reached from either its west or east end. While in the east the main Portland Beach Road situated between Weymouth and Portland has a large car park, the western end is easier to tread on with a car park situated on the coast right next to the village of Abbotsbury.
