A very unusual coastal area. Fascinating rock formations and lots of fossils to find. Not really a sea area to swim in

Beautiful stoney beach. Great for a romantic walk, picnic or for people watching.

Lots of people dog walking. Great for fossil hunting

Surrounded by great scenery and location, the beach is a mixture of rock, shingle, coarse sand and mud. There is a fresh water pool which you can fish in and there were tadpoles in so we used a childs fishing net with our grandchild to catch some and put them back before we left. There are some rock pools to explore. We have caught crabs in the past but not this time. There are fossils to find on the rocks which the children love. There were fishermen catch fish off the rocks. The mud is pretty sucky so GO CAREFUL. Our dog got black socks which I managed to wash off before it caked on hard. He loves to come here and explore. The parking was free this time as the meter was not there. There is a lovely short walk from the car to the beach. You will need trainers, walking boots or boots. The rocks are not easy to walk on if you have walking problems. Its a great place for the kids to explore. Watch out for the tide though - if its coming in. You need to wrap up warm in the winter but great to blow the cobwebs away and lovely in the summer as an alternative for the south coast beaches.

Whilst I didn't get to find any fossils (I believe that there are some very large specimens to the West of the beach) the geology of the beach has the wow factor for me. The best way to describe it is to say that it looks as though someone has ploughed the rocks and has left furrows behind. It really is different (see photos below).

Need to know:
1. ACCESS: Is from the beach car park in Kilve itself (via a narrow road with passing places).
2. PARKING: There is plenty of parking which is pay and display (although don't miss the ticket machine on the way in otherwise it could be a bit of a walk back). Blue Badge parking is free
3. FOOTING: There is an easy walk to the beach but the rocks themselves are slippy.
4. FOSSILS: Whilst you are allowed to remove fossils that are already freed from the rock you aren't allowed to remove anything from the rocks themselves. (Obviously photography suits all concerned.)
4. PHOTOGRAPHY: Good place to take some shots.

Well worth a visit.

An amazing piece of coastline but try to avoid windy days. A small distance from GWR stations and coastal towns and harbours.
