The wonderful Charmouth Beach has been shortlisted as one of five contenders for the BBC Countryfile Beach Of The Year 2017.
With its safe swimming, sandy areas of shoreline, and of course the excellent fossil hunting, there is something for everyone throughout the year. Even now in January the beach provides fantastic walks to Lyme Regis or Seatown at low tide, with a spot of fossil hunting en-route.
Help Charmouth receive the recognition it deserves and submit your vote now!
