This fossil "graveyard" truly is amazing. Worth the walk even in a pouring rain. Visible only at low tide. If you're lucky you may find your own souvenir ammonite!

Don't miss a walk to the Ammonite graveyard. It really is! Millions of the things fossilised in the rock. Go at just before low tide, so you don't want to get cut off and caught out, as it can only be seen when the sea...More

lovely beach area of pebbles with spectacular cliffs. The views around the bay are stunning. The beach is a large area and so there is plenty of space. Don't go too near the cliffs without supervision as there are often cliff falls in the area...More

Enjoyable walk along Monmouth beach (pebbles and rocks, so advise walking boots to support ankles). Super plate sized ammonites to view. 12 - 44 enjoyed it!

We were disappointed to find it so difficult to walk on. As one of the few beach areas where dogs are allowed in August, we walked to find it. Our dog was quickly distressed and we had to come away.

Look for fossils and enjoy a stroll or just sit and watch the sunset. Full of atmosphere and lovely place to relax.

Great to walk along and search for fossils and enjoy the views out to sea. Not too busy either on a sunny Sunday in August.

This is an absolute must if you're in or near Lyme Regis. You need decent shoes as the beach is stony and rocky but it's well worth the effort. If you're going to search for fossils there's a 'code of conduct' to protect the beach...More

Although I did not walk far enough along Monmouth beach to find decent fossils, I still found a sponge, some 'beef' ammonites and a couple of brachiopods. There is an ammonite graveyard exposed at low tide - a smooth but uneven area of rock displaying...More
