Spent a great 2 hours walking on the beach looking for fossils. Great way to get some exercise. Lots of pebbles, and theres always the chance you may stumble upon a great find. Didn't happen this time but we have been lucky on a previous visit. We were cautious of the tides and land slips, but really its quite safe... More

there has been a huge amount of damage done over the winter to the beach, the amonite beds have been badly damaged and there have been significant landlips but its still a great place to go.

What a great way to spend a day, searching for fossils to the backdrop of Lyme Bay. It is not a sandy beach, it is a very pebbly beach, but each pebble might contain a fossil!

Most and only important thing is if you want to go seeing Fossils you should go +/- 1.5 hour before/after low tide. We didn't know and had to return. So make sure you stick on the tides to enjoy your full walk and seeing the fossils. They really are stunning!

You can find fossils on Monmouth beach but Charmouth is apparently the better beach for fossil hunting. However what makes Monmouth beach spectacular and different is that it has a flat stone area smothered with fossils looks a bit like a crater of a moon. Also further down past the moon crater (practically at end of cliff face) there is... More

A lovely sandy beach just right for families with small and big children alike. It does get very busy on sunny days and parking nearby can be a nightmare so do get there a bit earlier than you think! The car park at the end of Cobb road is the closest to the beach, so good if you are carrying... More

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.
