Overview





Ringstead Bay is a small bay situated on the south coast of England about midway between Weymouth and Lulworth Cove. It is a pretty rural bay that provides a deep-water anchorage off a delightful finely-pebbled beach.

Ringstead Bay is a small bay situated on the south coast of England about midway between Weymouth and Lulworth Cove. It is a pretty rural bay that provides a deep-water anchorage off a delightful finely-pebbled beach.

Ringstead Bay offers a tolerable anchorage in offshore and settled conditions where an overnight stay would be possible. But in any southerly component conditions, or in the event of any swell from that direction, the bay is entirely untenable. Although flanked by foul ground, on both sides, an approach from the southeast, in daylight, is straight forward.
