Monmouth beach is not the kind of place you go paddling or sunbathing on, but a god-forsaken obstacle course (don't try and stand on the black rocks, they're a slippery death trap) of a place that no one in their right mind would attempt to traverse, if it wasn't for one thing, the Ammonite Pavement. First rule, check the tide... More

Stoney beach with lots of debris from cliffs. Good spot for fossils. Dogs allowed. Some of the walking is on rough ground.

A real hidden gem of a local well kept secret it would seem - at the harbour, turn right and keep walking to where the land juts out in to the sea. Takes about 20 minutes from the harbour. Go at low tide and time your arrival for no later than when the tide is fully out as when it... More

Beach at Lyme is easily accessible, clean and is handy for all amenities. Lovely traditional English seaside place to visit for families and couples alike. Lyme is a well looked after area and a pleasure to visit. Looking forward to returning

In the summer the main beaches of Lyme Regis are closed to dogs so it is worth knowing about Monmouth beach. It is at the far end of town past the Cobb but you can walk your dog on a lead down the front and, although stony, Monmouth beach is great stretch of dog friendly running. You must pick up... More

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.
