Weymouth Beach is award winning.
Our golden sands have picked up a Seaside Award from Keep Britain Tidy.
Weymouth Beach has been honoured for its facilities and cleanliness.
Borough Councillor Ian Bruce has just come back from Tenerife and says he thinks our beach is better:
"They do a lot of very good things over there, but they're no way near the wonderful beach that we have in Weymouth. It is something the Council invests in. The cleanliness of the beach isn't something that happens automatically, and the re-profiling, we keep it absolutely tip-top."
Phil Barton, Chief Executive of Keep Britain Tidy, said: “Weymouth has a lovely beach, which is a real asset to the town and sure to attract visitors from far afield.
“Beaches given the Seaside Award can often be very different, but the flag is a symbol of quality which guarantees to visitors that the beach is one of the best in the country.”
