To the west of the town and the Cobb, Monmouth Beach is a bit out of the way, and can only be approached by walking along the shingle. The cliffs are dangerous and prone to slippage, but you never know, you might find a fossil or two lying around the beach.

Another stunning beach where you can see evidence of life in the Jurassic Era in the rocks about your feet.

Lovely place to visit, sandy beach that's great for kids to play in the sand. Also pebble beach for looking for fossils. Food festival is on so great to try different food and beers in the beer tent. Reasonable priced fish and chips although we didn't try ! Looks good. The car park at the top of cardiac hill is... More

I went to Lyme Regis with the hope that I might return with some fossils, but after a few days it seemed unlikely. However, as soon as I stepped on this beach (at low tide) there were fossils everywhere! There is of course the ammonite graveyard at the end of the beach which is truly fascinating and well worth a... More

This historic English port town has all the charm you might ever want. It's full of interesting shops and delicious little restaurants full of British goodies. You can sit outside these places on the patios above the beach and watch the tide come in. It really moves fast.

A lovely pebbly/rocky beach very easy to walk on and hunting fossils at low tide was fun. We could hear squeals of delight from children when they found one and as an older couple, we enjoyed it just as much. I think I found the same one I saw ( and have a photo of) when I was here 25... More

Great beach easily accessible from the cobb car park. Can easily find fossils on the beach, not easy walking on the rocks, would recommend wellington boots.

The beach at the bottom of the main road down the hill is a classic shelving shingle beach, which, when the tide goes out, reveals sand great for building sand castles. Hot tip - if with no children, lie down, close your eyes and allow the gentle sound of distant children laughing, the sea and the seagulls send you into... More

Plate - sized ammonites by the dozens are exposed in a limestone pavement the size of a city plaza at low tide. Monmouth Beach, stretching westwards from the Cobb, is another pebble ("shingle") beach at Lyme Regis. Walking is generally easier along the sand and limestone by the edge of the water, only exposed at low tide. In order to... More
