Charming seaside town on the south coast with a thriving arts community, great local shops, a picture perfect crescent beach (though packed in summer) and a harbour Cobb made famous from the French Lieutenant's Woman. Many of the rental houses and hotels (the Alexandra is the best) have great seaviews. Local activities include sailing, fishing trips out from the harbour, and fossil hunting - this is in the middle of the Jurassic Coast, and guided fossil walks are organised from several of the fossil shops in town.
