Just below Sandsfoot Castle and Gardens on the shores of Portland Harbour you’ll find Castle Cove Beach.
Usually quiet and uncrowded it’s a favourite amongst locals and offers safe bathing from a gently sloping shoreline.
Access is from the end of Old Castle Road. There’s on street parking in the road with no charges and even on quite busy summers days it’s usually possible to find a space although our advice is if you want to be sure of parking get there early.
Be sure when visiting Castle Cove to take some time off the beach and take a look around Sandsfoot Castle and Gardens which is about 100 yards from the beach
