Lovely pebble beach in a beautiful location with exceptional views! Lots to keep busy with searching for fossils or catching crabs in the rock pools!

Great afternoon spent by the sea with the dog and toddler in tow. Do check for tide times as the tide was coming in at the time of our visit although still out far enough to explore the rock pools and have a paddle. Found a couple of fossils imprinted in the stone which was a great find for kids and adults alike. Parking reasonably priced and a great cafe on the hillside by the car park serving light lunches, cream teas and yummy ice-cream, all in all a great way to fill an afternoon

Ok, maybe we chose the wrong day to go (blustery winds off the north coast) but wow a place. Gorgeous location, inexpensive car park, picnic areas and a nice break away from your usual day out.

Just a mention to those wishing to go... FYI it's not a traditional beach beach!! I'd be very surprised if you would go to sunbathe or play a game of Frisbee!! But fossil hunting indeed, a lovely place for a picnic indeed.

Only shame was that the pub up the road has sadly closed, as that would of been a great place to chill out after a walk on the Quantocks

No sand to be found here but great for finding fossils and rock pooling. Wish i'd worn trainers as its very rocky to walk over, was also windy & i ended up going back to the car for a jacket to keep warm! Pay & display car park so take some change, note no facilities available.

We walked from Lilstock Beach to Kilve Beach and decided to pop down and see if we could spot any fossils, we didn't expect to actually see any but were pleasantly surprised when we came across dozens dotted across the place. If you go about 100m to the left then you will see lots embedded into the large rocks, you can also find small chippings which have some fossils on them. Happily spent a couple of hours looking around, great place to bring kids.
