St Gabriel’s Mouth Beach
This remote stretch of sand is deep in Jurassic Coast fossil country. St Gabriel’s Mouth can be found below beneath Golden Cap, the highest cliff on the south coast of England.
The beach is accessed via steep wooden steps and takes around half an hour to walk to from the car park at Golden Cap.
As with much of this part of the coast there is the potential of cliff slides and falling rocks, so be aware of this when you throw your towel down.
The name of the beach comes from the ruins of St Gabriel’s church nearby.
Please note, at the present time there is no access to the beach on foot due to a landslide in 2017.
