This extends northwest of the town towards Charmouth. The cliffs surrounding the beach are very unstable with extensive mudflows in places, and should be admired from a distance. The beach can be accessed from the north end of the promenade. Follow the asphalt road from Cobb Gate car park to the end and drop down onto the sands. Enquire about tides before you set out because the beach can be cut off at high tide.
The cliffs above this beach are called the Spittles and are part of the biggest landslip in Europe. The Coast Path slid down the slopes in the last decade and there is now no right of way on this path between Lyme and Charmouth, because the land at the cliff edge belongs to the golf club.
