Tucked away below Nothe Gardens, Newton’s cove is a small area of shingle with plenty of rock pools. The beach is backed by a modern promenade which makes access easy from Nothe Fort. Generally speaking this is one of the quieter spots in Weymouth and can be a great spot to get away from the summer crowds.
The cove sits in the shelter of the he Portland breakwater and harbour. This makes it a good spot for swimming and snorkelling, although be aware there is no lifeguard here.
Newton’s cove’s shoreline is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) as it is home to a rare geological formation known as the Nothe series.
