The cliffs above the beach are a noted source of fossils from the Jurassic period. Fossil-hunters walk the beaches between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, but have to be wary of tides and landslips. The Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site covers 3 geological time periods; the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. These are showcased in the 3 rock types found along the coast.
