We made a 2 hour journey to go to t beach with my dinosaur mad son, in the hope of finding fossils and the ammonite pavement. If this is what you are wanting this is the beach for you. We h a great time, found some fossils and the pavement is impressive.

This beach is a walk across the front of Lyme Regis and past the Cobb. Lots of ammonites to see, the locals called it ammonite graveyard. Very spectacular . Worth a visit, take your camera.

This beach is sadly not as safe as it used to be due to land slippage. we went poking about in the rain on the hunt for fossils, which we actually found just among the shingle on the beach. Don't hack at the cliffs, they just might get their own back!!

Monmouth Beach is not well signposted (it's to the west of the cobb) but well worth a visit if you want to avoid the very crowded Town Beach at Lyme Regis for a sparsely populated one, don't mind the stones (though there's sand at low tide) and would like to see some huge fossil ammonites. These are at the far end of the beach away from the town and you don't need a hammer to see the really large ones, though many people seem to take hammers to make their own fossil discoveries. It is quite difficult clambering over the rocks but more accesible at low tide..

Although busy, the low tide brought rock pool surprises and a lovely walk. Mind this is the only beach that the dog was allowed on so our choice was limited.
