Church Ope Cove

Discover one of Portland’s hidden gems on the island’s sheltered east coast. Climb down steps to enjoy this secretive cove or explore the weares , a unique rocky landscape created through landslips and quarrying. Wind your way along pathways and enjoy butterflies in spring and summer or colourful scrub berries and leaves in autumn. Follow the SWCP (and Legacy Trail) and join the old railway that runs along the base of the cliffs with views over the weares and the Jurassic Coast. Pick up a circular wall from the Portland Museum and see their collection of fossils.
