Church Cliff Beach

Church Cliff beach is sandy in places and at low tide there is a rock ledge with rock pools. The River Lym flows into the bay on this part of the beach and the beach disappears at high tide.

To the east edge of the beach you have Broad Ledge, a shale and limestone ledge that extends out into the English Channel. At low tide, it’s a popular rock pooling spot, where you can find mollusks, crustaceans and fish. You can also walk further way from Lyme Regis to East Beach where you have more rock formations to explore.

You have access to all facilities within Lyme Regis.

Church Cliff Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
