Monmouth Beach is a pebble and rock beach stretching approximately 1 mile from Lyme Regis's harbour, the Cobb, to Pinhay Bay,. It is part of the Jurassic Coast, situated below Ware Cliffs, and is constructed of a bay and a cove, Poker's Pool and Chippel Bay.

Monmouth beach is so named because the Duke of Monmouth landed there in 1685 during his attempt to take the crown from King James II. Following the defeat of the Duke of Monmouth, twelve locals were hanged on the beach on the order of the notorious “Hanging Judge” Jeffreys.

  • An enjoyable afternoon fossil hunting on Monmouth beach. Best done at low tide so be mindful of when you are going. Good shoes are highly recommended as the large rocks can be tricky to walk over. 
  • Because it had no fossil tour two days went to the Lyme Regis fossil tours, famous in a two-day visit, unfortunately at low tide, early in the morning and evening because, reluctantly yourself walking the coast looking for fossils. Mammoths walked about 400 meters to the right (West) toward the sea of the Cobb famous Jetty, beach, easily found many Ammonite fossils. In many fallen. Me the hammer and go on tour, digging has, seems to return (hammer tour selling fossil shops of the city, even), I take only photographs, have been turned back. Land side immediately cliffs (2 million years ago, it is impressive), so the tide is filled with no way out (up to point to land on a safe place to walk, 300-difficult run is 400 m long, difficult to walk on with rugged rocky coast), so please ask locally find the net before the time of ebb and flow. It is dangerous, and the tide is rising. So excited about odd and not particularly interested in the fossils I find real love and I think. As well as the Lyme Regis and Jurassic Coast are near the area.
