Charmouth Beach is slightly shelving and is made up of pebbles and sand.
Charmouth Beach is famous, along with Lyme Regis, for its fossils, especially in winter months due to the rough seas.
Charmouth Beach is located 2 miles from Lyme Regis and 6 miles from Bridport.
At the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre you can find out how to hunt for your own fossils by joining one of the regular guided fossil walks.
Guided walks are held (Feb - Sep tides permitting).
The coast path continues eastwards to Lyme Regis and East Devon and westwards to Seatown.
ALWAYS FOLLOW THE FOSSIL COLLECTING CODE OF PRACTICE: COLLECTING FROM FALLEN OR BEACH MATERIAL IS ACCEPTABLE PRACTICE. DIGGING IN THE CLIFFS IS NOT...
