  • Ringstead Bay Beach is a shingle beach in a quiet rural location and is ideal for those who are looking for a peaceful day out.  As the tide goes out you will get some sand and the beach is overlooked by unspoilt farmland and cliffs.

    The bay was once used by smugglers and is now a popular location for fossil hunters – this is the Jurassic coast.

    There is a pay car park just up from the beach (plus shop and cafe) OR free parking at Southdown, the National Trust land at the top of the cliff, but with a long steep walk from the beach.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for Ringstead Bay Beach.
