Chesil Beach & Stennis Ledges 

With its 18 miles of golden shingle, Chesil Beach is an imposing landmark on the Dorset coast. This Marine Protected Area protects the seabed adjacent to the beach and the rocky reefs of Stennis Ledges opposite the Fleet.

Native oysters, abundant lobsters and pink seafan corals are just some of the diverse wildlife that live in the waters off Chesil Beach.
