The beach at Greenhill offers every bit as much as Weymouth’s main sandy beach yet is nearly always far quieter and relaxing. As most locals where they go to when they want a day on the beach and you’ll find a large proportion of them will say Greenhill.
Most of the beach is pebbles rather than sand but on the shore line between tides there’s plenty of sand for sandcastle building. Being a little less sheltered by Portland you’ll get a few more waves than on the main sandy beach which can be a lot of fun and not particularly menacing except on very windy days. Generally quite safe but advice here is to use caution when with children as the water can tend to get deeper closer to shore than it does on the main sandy beach particularly at high tides. Keep an eye out for warning flags .
The entire beach is bordered by a pleasant promenade, take a lookout for the renovated Victorian lamp stands these were originally the lighting on the main Esplanade.
Weymouth’s beautifully kept Greenhill Gardens border a large length of Greenhill Beach and are nice to explore when you’ve become bored with sunbathing. They have some beautifully kept borders, a floral clock, and an interesting collection of succulents. Events take place here quite often during the season, take a look at the notice board behind the cafe in the gardens where you’ll usually find posters advertising what’s happening.
