  • “Amazing apartment and location with amazing sea views.”

    It Suited our needs for coastal walking and Stand Up paddle boarding.

    It Suited our needs for coastal walking and Stand Up paddle boarding. We also loved sitting out on the balcony watching the world go by, in down time. The apartment had everything we needed to make our week away a relaxing time. Would highly recommend

About the location


Bowleaze sits behind Bowleaze Cove and right at the end of Weymouth’s long 3-mile beach front perched on the edge of Preston. This small sand and shingle beach is a popular choice for those who like to use Jet Ski’s as it’s one of the few areas on the beach front they can be used freely. This area of Weymouth offers beautiful views back towards Weymouth and Portland whilst only being a short distance from the main beach and town centre. There are many places to eat and you can join the south west coast path towards Osmington Mills, Ringstead and beyond from here. Predominantly a residential area, it’s perfect those who want to escape to the seaside but retain the tranquillity of a residential area.
