This beach is wonderful, quiet and interesting. Walk out along the beach when the tide is out, and look in the rockpools, as well as the famous fossils in the pebbles and big rocks, just be aware of the incoming tide, it is easy to get cut off, and be trapped!!

We had originally planned on taking the museum tour, but they ran out of room. So, we set out on our own and took a brief walk outside of town - maybe .5 miles out past the caravans - and began to see fossils almost immediately. Many ammonites peeked up from large boulders, as if to welcome one back through... More

I love Monmouth Beach it's perfect for little explorers, big kids and couples. Perfect for those of us with our four legged family members in tow. We stop in and have a tea, coffee or something a little stronger in The Power Boat Club which is situated opposite the Lyme Regis boat building academy. They serve up breakfasts that are... More

I like this beach because you can walk your dog here. Between April and October, you aren't allowed to have you dog on the other Lyme Regis beaches. The beach is lined with cute day huts and behind them are various workshops (wooden boat making) Lifeboats, sailing club, power boat clubhouse etc.

A wonderful place to go fossil hunting but do take care as these cliffs often tumble down after rain or frost. Children will love the excitement of seeing old ferns and ammonites etc revealed by each successive landslide. By looking a long the beach and not going too near the cliff sides they will stay safe whilst still finding fossils... More

Clean, unspoilt beach. Great for kids and adults. Be patient, look carefully and you WILL find fossils. The kids found some nice Ammonites, and Fool's gold - Very exciting!

To look for the the graveyard fossils it needs to be lowtide. So make sure to check this before. Its quite rocky and time really flies by cause there are so many great fossils to see. Great place to visit when you are in Lyme Regis

Pebbly beach which apparently is good for fossil hunting. We didn't bother, but we did see some large ammonites in the boulders which was cool. This beach was much quieter than the main town beach, we were surprised more people hadn't bothered to walk around to it. It had a sandy bit for the kids to dig in and looked... More

One of the few dog friendly beaches in Lyme where your dog can run around and have some fun. Get to the car park early as by midday it will be full. A bit hard going on the feet at high tide, but low tide makes things a lot easier with sandy stretches. Great fossil encrusted plateau further along the... More

beautiful weather -again small enough to be atmospheric when the hopes of those landing can be felt,knowing their ultimate fate in Dorchester Bloody Assizes made it more real.
