Kimmeridge Bay is an excellent place from which to experience the extraordinary geological importance of the Jurassic Coast, a ninety-five mile stretch of coastline between Swanage and Exmouth that became England’s first Natural World Heritage Site in honour of its unique insight into 185 million years of the Earth’s history.
This sheltered bay, though not sandy, is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to the Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Marine Centre.
There is a car park at the end of a toll road (£3) and a pub and shop in the local village, about twenty minutes walk from the car park.
