This small hamlet is humble yet dramatic with great cliffs and a beautiful bay. It is famous for its fossil finds which regularly fall from the unstable rock face and its unique geology means that it is home to many interesting marine creatures, in fact the Bay is part of the Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve and also the famous Jurassic Coast. You can find more about these at the Fine Foundation Marine Centre on the beach or follow the snorkelling trail around the bay (summer only). The cliffs are very unstable and therefore visitors should not search for fossils on the cliff face. Please note access to the Marine Centre and Bay is by a toll road.
Clavell’s Café and Farm Shop can be found in the main street and is open all year.
