Directions and Parking Details
From the A3052 (The main coast that runs from Exeter to Lyme Regis) take any of the well signposted Sidmouth turnings drive through the town following the signs for the seafront. Turn right at the seafront and follow the sea road along the Esplanade with the sea on your left shoulder. as you approach the hill at the end of the seafront there is limited parking at the end of the road. The dive site is just out to sea beyond the cliffs that are straight ahead of you.


Site Description

As with the other end of the beach - there is a small rocky area just offshore. Not much of a reef - although some weed grows in the Summer. Only worth doing as a training dive (you never know something unusual can appear on any dive and make it special.)

Sidmouth itself is a nice town to visit, normally a peaceful little place it is home to a massive folk festival in the summer.

Wheelchair Access
Fair access to the beach but quite a trek over the shingle

Marine Life Details
Normally sparse, however as with all wildlife you never know what you will see. Dolphins and Seals are sighted all along this coast and it only takes brief a sighting of  something unusual to turn a dull dive into something special.


Other information
Worth the visit even if the diving isn't great. A pleasant seafront holiday town with good facilities and shops.
