As the host venue for the sailing events of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the waters provide the perfect setting for sailing, angling and diving.

Opt to sail with a team of highly qualified instructors and coaches from the Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy. There are also plenty of opportunities to try out a new activity, learn a new watersport, or take a white-knuckle boat ride out in Weymouth Bay.

For more land-based activities why not try rock climbing, paragliding, hiking, cycling or pony trekking. The countryside and cliffs provide the ideal locations for these and many more activities.

After a day of activity, share your experiences and relax with a well-deserved meal at a nearby restaurant or a pint at the pub, overlooking the mighty sweep of Chesil Beach. Superb.
