My Jurassic Coast hotspot
Since working for the Jurassic Coast Trust I have discovered so many beautiful beaches that are new to me, particularly in East Devon. However, the ones we go to the most are closer to home. My family love sea swimming so it’s a toss-up between Charmouth, Lyme and West Bay for that. To be honest it is West Bay that we usually go to as it is closest to home, the cliffs are spectacular and there’s a lovely buzz as most people are there on holiday. No trip is complete without a visit to the kiosks for fish and chips and Baboo Gelato icecreams….
