Portland Bill on the Isle of Portland Dorset England
Portland Bill on the Isle of Portland Dorset England

Although Portland remains 'tied' to the county's mainland by the 18-mile-long shingle stretch of Chesil Beach, this unique island is unlike any other part of Dorset. Marking the southernmost point of the Jurassic Coast, this four-mile-long, half-mile-wide gem is a natural wonderland of rugged, unspolit landscapes and coastal scenes that beg for exploration. Much of Portland, including the entire coastline, is designated as a Site of Special Scientific interest, protecting the natural habitats of the native wildlife and the remarkable geology of the island. 

Beyond the delights of the island itself, Portland is also the gateway to a number of Dorset and Southern England's most scenic, and most iconic, attractions and destinations including Stonehenge, Bath and Salisbury Cathedral. Additionally, nearby there are a number of beautiful castles, such as Portland, Rufus and Sandfoot, as well as Nothe fort and Max Gate.
