Seaton Beach is a must for those with an interest in dinosaurs and fossils. Often known as the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, the mile long beach at Seaton Bay has been the site of rare fossil finds for centuries, some of which are amongst the most significant in geological history.
The Jurassic Coast dates back 185 million years, and it’s difficult to imagine the cliffs you see today standing in the period when dinosaurs ruled. Whether you choose Seaton Bay beach to enjoy the safe swimming, gently sloping pebble beach or spectacular scenery...keep your eyes peeled for a find.
These days the closest you'll get to the dinosaurs is the sight of dogs enjoying the beach, as they're welcome throughout the year and as the route to access the beach from the road is level it's not a bad choice for those with pushchairs.
There are amenities close to the beach, and it's worth noting that the car parks can get pretty packed on a warm summer's day. If this happens you'll find a few spots on the road beside the beach if you arrive early enough.
