Portland Harbour

Many Divers, Ducks and Grebes winter in Portland Harbour. One of the best places to view these birds is to park at the Chesil Beach Centre and walk along the disused railway line now called the Rodwell Trail. From Sandsfoot gardens good views can be had of most of the northern side of the harbour. There is also a welcome cafe in the gardens.

For the southern side of the harbour parkclose to Portland Castle for birdwatching from new esplanade
