Back Beach is a popular section of the Lyme Regis coastline for a walk, and you'll find it in the north west of the town. The beach extends towards Charmouth and the easiest place to access it is from the north of the town's promenade.
This is a pretty beach with the picturesque scenery we all know and love Lyme Regis for, but if you're going to spend time on it make sure you check the tide times first as there's a risk of being cut off.
Back Beach’s pebbles mean that it’s not the best spot for sprawling in the sun, but with so many pebbles to search for fossils you’ll have more than enough to entertain you. It's a popular spot for a family walk or to let the children see if they can find their own piece of Jurassic history.
It’s worth noting that the cliffs around Back Beach are fairly unstable, so it’s best to enjoy them from a little distance rather than directly beneath them.
