The Beach Guide

Charmouth Beach

Popular on account of having a little more sand than Charmouth’s West Beach, Charmouth’s East Beach is a good place to find small Ammonite and Belemnite fossils. Access is either over a footbridge, or by wading through the river at low tide. Safe swimming but frequent landslides, so avoid sitting directly under the cliffs.

Great place for family and dogs too, gentle sloping tide, at low tide one can walk over 100m into sea and still be standing, some area in sea totally sand some totally rocks, check best area for swimming at low tide to view then remember for high tide, river is nice area to swim too but usually lot colder water but salt free for dogs!

Love Charmouth

An underrated beech. You can do lots here from crabbing when the tide is out. Looking for fossils too as well as swimming in the sea. Nice lots of beech huts available and cafe and a beech shop.
