Kimmeridge Bay

One of the very few designated marine nature reserves within the country and another part of the Jurassic Coast. Although fossils can be found within the shale cliffs the cliffs are constantly crumbling away. With a layer of limestone directly above the shale collecting fossils from Kimmeridge appears to be rather foolish.

The diversity of the marine life is staggering. Underneath the clear, shallow waters a reef extends out into the bay. Glass-bottom kayaks and snorkelling equipment is available to hire but if you’d prefer to stay dry a visit at low tide reveals some of the sights.
