Charmouth - East Beach - Dorset

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.
