Monmouth beach is ideal for people who enjoy looking for fossils. If you walk far enough along the beach ammonites can be found washed up from the movement of the tide.
One of the best family beaches on the south coast. Built sand castles and sculptures here on Boxing Day 2014. Unbelievable views if the coastline and harbour from above the beach. Lots of interesting shops, galleries and eating places. Space for children to ride bikes and scooters safely. This place has lots of character. Charming.
It really depends upon what type of beach you prefer. If it's a sandy beach full of sandy children eating sandy ice creams with parents eating sandy sandwiches, then this beach isn't for you. It's cobbly and there is a wildness about it, especially with the westerly wind. It's where I go when I have things on my mind that... More
We went for a house with a screw driver goggles and hammer. Look out for the soft black stuff as we opened one and there were five ammonites. We went for an hour after rain and just as tide was going out and came back with fifteen fossils. Look out for rocks with fossils on them as we found loads.... More

Not much of a beach for sunbathing, but wonderful if you like to scramble, poke around and pick up bits of millions years old wildlife.

We made a 2 hour journey to go to t beach with my dinosaur mad son, in the hope of finding fossils and the ammonite pavement. If this is what you are wanting this is the beach for you. We h a great time, found some fossils and the pavement is impressive.
This beach is sadly not as safe as it used to be due to land slippage. we went poking about in the rain on the hunt for fossils, which we actually found just among the shingle on the beach. Don't hack at the cliffs, they just might get their own back!!
Monmouth Beach is not well signposted (it's to the west of the cobb) but well worth a visit if you want to avoid the very crowded Town Beach at Lyme Regis for a sparsely populated one, don't mind the stones (though there's sand at low tide) and would like to see some huge fossil ammonites. These are at the far... More
