About Osmington Bay

A beautiful coastal location, stunning views across the sea and direct access to the beach – Osmington Bay activity centre is a popular choice for secondary schools.

All our watersports take place at the Portland Bay Olympic venue nearby, where your students can test their skills on the water with some sailing, kayaking, raft building or dragon boating.

There’s plenty to do at the centre itself too; we’ve got climbing walls, archery ranges, zip wires and giant swings to name just a few of the activities available. All our activity sessions will help inspire, motivate and challenge your students.

Osmington Bay has a great range of facilities too. There’s an indoor activity zone which is ideal in wet weather. There’s also a sports hall and plenty of classroom space to take advantage of.
