Hosts to the London 2012 Olympic sailing and connected to the Dorset resort of Weymouth by a causeway, Portland is a small Island offering a handful of beautiful holiday homes for rent. Its limestone coastline is beautiful as well as being perfect for sailing and diving. With an interesting stretch of sand that runs adjacent to the main road running from Weymouth to Portland it also branches out beyond the land leaving a sandy strip further out to sea which eventually joins the land at Portland.

The harbour is one of the largest on the south coast of England and is constantly in use from pleasure boats to cross channel ferries.
