A fantastic oportunity to develop a hobby, to get involved in something else than surfing the internet. Outdoor activity and a brilliant opportunity to learn about the past of our Earth.

Great beach! Very pebbly at first but walk further on and a sand bar and rock pools appear. The fossils are everywhere. And dog friendly too.

Lovely spot to lose yourself for a few hours, get engrossed rooting around for fossils and listening to the sound of the waves breaking against the pebbles.

This can be the quiet pebbly side of the Beach at Lyme Regis. Great for a walk under the cliffs or a quieter beach experience. No food places or arcades, just pebbles and sea.

Shingly beach with the ammonite pavement at the far end well worth a visit. Stay away from the cliffs as there are regular slides. Awe inspiring to find so many fossils embedded in the beach and lovely scrambling over boulders and finding endless surprises. Something...More

I went mid-September 2017. The sand was soft and lovely. I’ve owned condos on the Atlantic in Florida. The stones, pebbles and rocks are often from a storm. Just my experience.
