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.

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.
