A firm favourite with locals and water sports enthusiasts Overcombe Beach at the far end of the Preston Beach Wall Esplanade is a perfect place to dine al fresco and enjoy the views.
The wide shingle beach at Overcombe whilst popular never really feels crowded but is a hive of activity throughout the year as it’s the place to go in Weymouth Bay for Kayaking and Windsurfing.
On the beach you’ll find Cafe Oasis a firm favourite for refreshments on the beach after a walk along the seafront. The cafe it’s self has a car park , you’ll need to pay and display but show your ticket when paying in the cafe and you’ll get a discount off your parking fee. Two or three minutes walk from the beach on The Preston road there is also a local council run pay and display car park. If your an early bird you may also be lucky enough to find a free roadside parking space but on summer days they get filled up very quick.
Overcombe beach can get a little exposed to the winds, it’s why windsurfers love it so much but on rough windy days we’d advise against recreational swimming here unless you’re a strong swimmer. On normal fine summers days though it’s fine.
