The shores of Lyme Bay are a fascinating mix of fossil bearing rocks, land-slipped cliffs and chalk head lands creating unique coastline. To the east lies Bridport; further west is Lyme Regis, a famous beach resort of great character, and on the far western edge of the bay, just within the Devon Border, is a charming little town of Beer in the shelter of the most westerly chalk cliffs in England.
A perfect circle of a beach lies at Lulworth Cove and the amazing Durdle Door is one of England’s most photographed spots, a natural archway which juts out into the sea.
A four mile stretch of golden sandy beach, with gentle bathing waters and views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. The heathland behind the beach is a haven for native wildlife and all six British reptiles. There are designated trails through the sand dunes and woodland so that you can explore the area.
Chesil Beach is another curious natural phenomenon in Dorset well worth a visit. It is a 27.3 km pebble beach which is up to 11m high and 175m wide and it encloses the Fleet Lagoon. The lagoon is a shallow area of salt-water 13km long between Chesil Beach and the mainland. The best view is from above on Portland.
