Charming CharmouthPosted on September 30th 2019
We are so lucky to have the beaches of Charmouth and Lyme Regis so close by, each with their unique reasons to visit.
The fossil-hunting beaches of Charmouth attract thousands of visitors every year, but even in the height of the Summer this stunning stretch of coastline never feels oppressively busy – perhaps due to the fact that only so many cars can park near its extensive beaches, which keeps the atmosphere calm and relaxed for all.
Charmouth heritage coast centre is at the beach to guide and promote learning about the Jurassic Coast. It is a great place to start if you are interested in the geology and history of the coastline. But simply as a beach, Charmouth
is worth a visit. Swimming, surfing and SUP are all enjoyed off the beach at Charmouth, with 2 beach cafe’s to keep you fed and watered during the day. The beach is made up of small pebble, with some sand, and, of course; plenty of fossils to find!
When the tide is out, it is a lovely walk along the beach to Lyme Regis which can be clearly seen across the bay – but make sure you are aware of the tide so you don’t get trapped as the seas come in!
