Close to Bridport, this is a small quaint harbour village with a shingle beach. Great for a brisk walk along the seafront. Plenty of cafes and places to eat. Plenty of parking.

West Bay was quiet, but ideal for an out of season visit. Enough places still open for a pleasant visit

We enjoyed a day in and around West Bay harbour, including the wonderful cliff-top and beach walks to either side of the harbour. The area was clean and well cared for, and the people in the pubs and shops were friendly and welcoming. Definitely worth...More

West Bay is a lovely place to walk, snack and people watch. Lots of interesting things to visit. The little shopping place at the old customs house is fascinating .

There is a large play area at beside the first car park when entering West Bay on the left. If you are there at the end of August there is an annual 'fare ground amusement' field.
