The beach is child friendly, fine shingle giving way to sand at low tide. To the right of the car park, the sea bed is rocky, weedy and snaggy and you will loose tackle but stand a chance of catching a big wrasse or bass. Early morning spinning or plugging in this area will often produce some good bass. In front of the car park and to the left you will be fishing onto fairly clean ground. The beach is not as steep as it is further east and there is not the same depth of water.
Techniques and catches will be broadly similar to Cogden, but without the walk and with the facilities.
The beaches along Chesil are not bathing beaches, people are drowned along this part of the coast almost every year.
