Greenhill Beach at Weymouth Beach - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
This panoramic image shows Greenhill Beach, part of the Weymouth Beach found to the north of the town centre. In this picture you can see the pavilion on the beach, beyond which is the rest of Weymouth beach and the Esplanade following Weymouth Bay, which is lined with hotels. To the north the beach continues to Preston Beach and then the coastline becomes rocky with white chalk cliffs as it continues east towards Kimmeridge, and Lulworth Cove. Weymouth bay is expansive, the beaches are lovely and the area is also very popular for boating and sailing. Not without reason Weymouth was selected as the location for the sailing events in the 2012 Olympics.

Greenhill Beach is near the center of Weymouth Bay. At the left end a rock groyne forms the boundary between Greenhill Beach and Preston Beach. The Pier Bandstand is at the right end of the beach. This end of the bay tends to be quieter, and the beach is a mixture of sand and shingle. It is also further away from many of the shops and restaurants found at Weymouth town centre. The Esplanade continues to run along the back of the beach and this is lined with numerous hotels and guest houses. Weymouth is a very popular beach holiday resort and a good base from which to explore the the Jurassic Coast.
