Lyme Regis is a hub of activity and local culture, making it a great base for a beach holiday on the Dorset coast. Choose Lyme Regis camping for great access to the array of watersports available locally, from basic body boarding for family fun to the technicalities of yachting and wind surfing.
There's plenty to do out of the water too: shore fishing for the angler preferring to keep their feet on solid ground, bowls if you want a traditional game on Lyme Regis' top class green, a round of golf at the Lyme Regis Golf Club, or a less serious spot of putting on the green at Langmoor Gardens. For birders, the cliffs surrounding Lyme Regis are a great location for spotting the many breeds of sea and shore line species that favour the area. And, for the hunters among you, this Jurassic Coast nucleus for the hopelessly fossil-focused is a great starting point for exploring the geology of the area, with Charmouth Heritage Centre on the doorstep. Search here for Lyme Regis campsites that suit the needs of your family or group, whether it's a lively, all-serviced holiday park you are looking for or a more secluded camping experience.
If you are a walker, many of these campsites in Lyme Regis offer ideal access to the South West Coastal Path which passes through the town: you'll see many ramblers sat enjoying the food and drink at the many good-quality eateries along the sea-front and in the streets behind. The walk through the undercliff to Seaton to explore the Heritage Nature Reserve is recommended and the many footpaths inland on loops through the surrounding countryside, always returning to the blue of the coast, provide endless possibilities for rambling.
Of course, one of the biggest draws are, as ever, the beaches themselves and Lyme Regis doesn't disappoint. Kids can crab fish in the harbour, fly their kites with their toes in the waves on breezy days and rock pool at low tide at Church Beach, a celebrated spot for shrimp catching. The good news is that, if you're taking your family's dogs, three of the four town beaches are dog-friendly all year round.
