The Travel Book – Kimmeridge Bay, Dorset, United Kingdom

There are some really interesting beaches along the coast of Dorset and today we will be looking at one of them that I went to for a long walk about 8 or 9 years ago and really loved it. Kimmeridge Bay is located on the Isle of Purbeck, close to the villages of Kimmeridge and the town of Wareham. It is part of the Jurassic Coast, which means that it is a world Heritage Site and is even an area that is used as a Special Scientific Interest site. It has the reputation of being the best place in Dorset to do rockpooling as well!

The rugged coastline, with these cliff faces and stony, sandy beaches have so much to offer and are a great place to visit with a family for a day out or even a long walk if you prefer. At the top of the bay there is also the iconic Clavell Tower which may be a place you can rent out as a holiday accommodation, but it is also been a place that has inspired writers such as Enid Blyton.

The beach is a vey natural one so it does not have lifeguards so if you do head into the sea you will have to be extremely careful. You can get to Kimmeridge Bay by driving and there is a car park that is included in the price of the toll road.

I have visited the area a number of times and all of those experiences have been walking on the hills that are next to the cliff and Clavell Tower. Whilst it is an amazing view and beautiful place to walk, there are parts that are really steep and tiring so if you are to walking assess the walking situation first.
