West Bay

From the end of the Jurassic Pier at West Bay, you can view the coast from South Devon to Portland in Dorset. Launch your boat at the West Bay Marina (Bridport Harbour). West Bay is a major gateway to the Jurassic Coast, which covers 95 miles of coast from Orcombe Rocks at Exmouth, Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset. Sometimes known as the Dinosaur Coast, tourists throughout the World visit Dorset for fossil hunting in stunning coastal scenery. The famous sandstone East Cliff at West Bay, formed from Lower Jurassic Bridport Sands exposes 180 million years of history.

  1. Beautiful photos – your posts on Dorset have made me want to visit again! :) We stopped near Lyme Regis the first time and near Swanage the second and both were beautiful areas.

  2. How could I miss this pier?!
