Wyke Regis is situated to the south west of Weymouth with Portland Harbour to one side and Chesil Beach to the other, there is also a small shopping area in the village where you can find the Old Wyke Stores who would welcome the views of locals, go to their site and let them know.
 
With Wyke’s excellent views of the Harbour it will became a tourist hotspot when the 2012 Olympic sailing were at the Sailing Academy on Portland and became the home of many of the sailing teams.

There is the more peaceful Rodwell Trail which runs from Wyke Regis and into the town of Weymouth, it used to be the old railway line and has now been converted to a popular trail for walks along the coastline with a view of Portland harbour.
 
Along the Rodwell Trail lies Castle Cove or Sandsfoot which is a small beach and sailing club.
 
This beach is mainly known to the locals and lies away from the hustle and bustle of Weymouth Town centre. There is also the castle and gardens which look out onto Portland Harbour and is a charming place to relax in the summer amongst the flowers.
The castle itself is one of Henry VIII’s Device forts built in the 1530s, today the castle is a ruin where most has fallen into the sea, parts of it still remain and it can be easily accessed through the small park and gardens.
 
The area also attracts many artists with it's proximity to Dorset's famous Jurassic Coast and Portland which is a hot-bed of artists. Some of their work can be viewed on JurassicArt.co.uk .
