Chesil Cove

Chesil Cove

Chesil Cove, at the most southerly, Portland, extreme of the 17 mile long Chesil Beach, is a pebble beach that protects the low-lying village of Chiswell from flooding.

Chesil Cove is a haven for scuba divers due to the numerous shipwrecks that have occurred in the treacherous waters off Chesil Beach. The cove has long been the home of fishermen, formerly from the village of Chiswell and now recreational sea anglers.
