A graveyard of vessels that failed to dock in Weymouth or Portland, Portland Bill is located on the Isle of Portland and is the southernmost point in Dorset. The Portland Race, a strong, dangerous tidal race caused by the meeting of tides, is visible from the shore. Portland Bill Lighthouse is a popular attraction on the Bill and an important waypoint for watercraft navigating this treacherous stretch of the English Channel.
