How can a World Heritage Site be so hideous?

Does the town not care for its World Heritage Status? The shanty town development is totally hideous . The fossils are amazing.

Go down here at low tide and you could be lucky enough to find fossils. Got to be careful of the cliffs and the sliding of the. Coastguards were out checking the cliffs when we were there. Watch out for dog mess as this is the only beach that dogs are allowed on but some owners are still not being... More

Really good beach for the kids fossil hunting. Not far. For them to walk, with interesting rocks and beach wood.

Lovely beach with the added attraction of the fossils you may find. Easy access for the not so able providing you can get in the car park. Although the car spaces were made for pre 1970 cars, when they were much smaller than the ones we have now

Not as frequented as The eastern beaches. However, the beach is still productive of various fossils. In addition, there is a flat expanse of stone with large number of huge Ammonites embedded in it to see. Worth a look.

Monmouth beach is not the kind of place you go paddling or sunbathing on, but a god-forsaken obstacle course (don't try and stand on the black rocks, they're a slippery death trap) of a place that no one in their right mind would attempt to traverse, if it wasn't for one thing, the Ammonite Pavement. First rule, check the tide... More

Stoney beach with lots of debris from cliffs. Good spot for fossils. Dogs allowed. Some of the walking is on rough ground.

A real hidden gem of a local well kept secret it would seem - at the harbour, turn right and keep walking to where the land juts out in to the sea. Takes about 20 minutes from the harbour. Go at low tide and time your arrival for no later than when the tide is fully out as when it... More

Beach at Lyme is easily accessible, clean and is handy for all amenities. Lovely traditional English seaside place to visit for families and couples alike. Lyme is a well looked after area and a pleasure to visit. Looking forward to returning
