Burton Bradstock to West Bay



How to get there: - Grid Reference; SY 491899. Head towards Weymouth from Burton Bradstock after about 1/3 mile, turn right and follow the road down to the HIve Beach Café and National trust car park.
Walk details:
Follow the coast path to the west in front of the café until you reach Freshwater caravan park. Here the path diverts inland, and back to the beach just inside the camp site to get over the river.
Back on the beach, pick up the path that runs just outside of the site and in front of the caravans and proceed up onto the cliff path where it meets the edge of Bridport Golf Course.
Follow the path along to the far end of the golf course and it then drops down into West Bay.
For the return, re-trace your route to Burton Bradstock which gives you great views in the opposite direction.
