Cogden Beach
Cogden Beach is owned by the National Trust. It is at the western end of Chesil beach. The beach is used by anglers and is an unofficial naturist spot. Behind the beach is Burton Mere an important spot for birds.
Chesil Beach
Chesil Beach is a 30 km long barrier beach, which formed as sea level rose at the end of the last ice age. It connects the Isle of Portland to the mainland and is sometimes, inaccurately, described as a tombolo. The beach is composed of shingle and is up to 200 metres wide and 15 metres high.
The pebbles are larger at the eastern end than the western end, so removing the possibility that it has been formed by Longshore Drift.
