Retire to Dorset

West Bay, Broadchurch, Dorset


Whether you're looking for seaside resorts or secluded coves, you'll find plenty to explore along the picturesque Dorset coastline. Discover soft sands and safe swimming at the popular beaches of Weymouth, clear waters at the seaside resort of Swanage, or immense views from the high cliffs at West Bay. You can sail, windsurf, swim or snorkel your way across the entire Jurassic Coast – and you might even be lucky enough to find a fossil or two!

You may even find yourself on a television set. Dorset’s coastline is so beautiful that West Bay played a starring role in TV drama Broadchurch, alongside Olivia Colman and David Tennant.
