Watch the tides when exploring the beaches. Walking from Lyme Regis to Charmouth along the beach in search of fossils is a great way to spend a few hours but ensure you don't get cut off by the tide. When you set off the beach may seem like a vast playground but the tide can come in surprisingly quickly. If you’re planning a walk along the beach to Charmouth and back or along Monmouth beach to Pinhay Bay, a good time to go would be around 2 hours before low tide as this should give you plenty of time.
