It is dominated by The Riviera Hotel, a long white Spanish  style building of the old Pontin’s holiday camp.

Bowleaze Beach is a pebbly beach backed by cliffs, there are odd patches of sand. You are able to walk along the beach all the way into Weymouth and as you progress towards Weymouth the beach becomes sand.
