This little known beach is a definite favourite with locals and offers some beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and coastal cliffs. Please note that there are no lifeguard patrols at this beach.
These cliffs are constantly eroding and revealing its treasures to the world making it very popular with fossil hunters. The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre at Charmouth Beach is only 5 miles away and an excellent source of fossil collecting information. You can view their Fossil Collecting Code on their webpage https://charmouth.org/chcc/the-fossil-collecting-code/
