The West Bay Webcams show view over West Bay and Lyme Bay as well as Bridport and West Bay Village Centre.
West Bay and Chesil Beach make up part of the Jurassic Coast world heritage site, a title that has been much vaunted locally since it was conferred by UNESCO on the beautiful and varied geography of the southern coast.
West Bay has a number of local caravan and camping sites, as well as hotels and B&Bs both in the bay and in surrounding villages such as Burton Bradstock.
There is also the Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club situated on top of the east cliff (in the photograph) just a short walk from West Bay with a full 18-hole course and 9-hole "pitch and putt" course in the summer season.
There are lots of fishing trips available in the summer, including deep sea fishing. Boats can also be hired to row up the River Brit towards Bridport.
The bay has a number of kiosks, serving traditional fish and chips, often with locally caught fish. There are also a few pubs, cafés, and restaurants, the most notable of which is the Riverside Restaurant, which has been voted one of The Observer's Top 10 Seafood Restaurants.
