The 700 yard stretch of beach known as Ringstead Bay is a shingle beach that is situated in Weymouth, Dorset.
This is a bay that has a fascinating history connected to smugglers and puts you in mind of one of the Famous Five stories written by the children’s author Enid Blyton. The bay is surrounded by cliffs as well as by farmland.
There are car parking facilities close to the bay but it is worth noting that it is quite a steep walk from the car park to the beach. The beach itself does not offer any facilities as such but the local village of Ringstead does provide some basic facilities such as public toilets and places to eat.
The water quality at this beach is pretty good although there is no lifeguard onsite here. This means that you can enjoy a range of water activities while you are here, such as sailing, swimming, and a number of other water activities.
In addition to this, you can take time to explore the local village as well as to enjoy the surrounding landscapes and scenery. For those who own pet dogs, this beach does allow dogs all year round, so you can take your pooch along for a fun day out at the beach with you.
