Seatown Beach

Seatown beach is a steep shingle beach and is regarded as one of Dorset’s prime fossil-hunting spots and is especially good for the elderly or young as access is good.

In the shingle and fallen rocks at the foot of the cliffs you can find small ammonites.

Facilities include parking, toilets and food outlets.
