    Barton On Sea Beach Information

    Barton On Sea beach is a shingle beach backed by cliffs some 4km to the east of Bournemouth with views out across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. The beach has some rock sea defences and rock groynes in an attempt to reduce the cliff erosion, the cliffs can be unstable which then also makes this a great location for fossil hunting and beachcombing.

    The Barton On Sea cliffs are famous for the clay formation known as Barton Beds or Barton Group a name given to a series of grey, greenish and brown clays with bands of sand. This whole stretch but in particular that between Barton and Highcliffe to the west is known for fossils and shells, in particular, gastropods, shark and ray teeth.

    The best time for fossil hunting and beachcombing is with a falling to low tide.

    The top of the cliffs has a grass area very popular with kite flyers and to the east, you have a golf club.

    Facilities at the beach include beach huts, shops, cafe, pub and the beach has a number of pay and display car parks and road parking is available.

    Barton On Sea Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Barton On Sea Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
