About this spot
West Bay is a quiet harbour village on the outskirts of Bridport, recently made famous by the English television drama, Broadchurch. Whilst the village and harbour are quaint and attractive, the prime photographic interests are the towering sandstone cliffs running from Burton Bradstock east along Chesil Beach to the harbour opening at West Bay. From autumn through spring, the setting sun kisses the cliffs with a stunning golden glow.
