Portland juts out like a bird's beak into the English Channel. This fascinating island offers the most perfect vantage point to marvel at the panoramic views of Dorset's Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site stretching both east and west along the Dorset coastline. Portland is home to the National Sailing Academy and along with neighbouring town Weymouth, it has played host to the sailing events in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Most visitors only know Portland for its famous stone or the lighthouse but there's a lot more to discover, from walks along the cliffs to exploring its varied history. Be sure to put it on your list of places to visit whilst on holiday. The Isle of Portland is not really an island, though it is only joined to the mainland by a narrow strip of land and the Chesil Beach.The mass of land that juts out into the channel is formed from a block of limestone 4½ miles long by ¾ of a mile wide.
