The village of Burton Bradstock on the B3157 coast road has a beach of steeply shelving flint shingle, known as Hive Beach. The shore in either direction is similar, but backed by sandstone cliffs to the west, and cliffs of Frome clay to the east. Parking is at a National Trust P&D car park which can be reached along the appropriately named Beach Road from Burton Bradstock. Facilities include a beach shop and a cafe. There can be a strong cross current here especially in surf conditions, so swimming is not advisable at such times. Dogs are allowed at all times.
