Great way to spend a few hours. Need to be very careful with tide times as it’s a fair walk from the car park/Cobb to the best part of the beach. Initially the fossils are tricky to spot but once your eyes tune in there...More

Not a beach for sunning yourself, but rather a great spot to obtain a suntan whilst searching for fossils (which it turns out are easier to find than you would think!).

We came to do some fossil hunting with our twin daughters (8). We found so many fossils and saw loads on big rocks on the beach. We all had a lovely time looking for fossils and made sure we stayed away from the cliff and...More

If you are wanting to see BIG ammonites this is the place to go! Plenty of parking close by and access to The Cobb too.

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
