Hive

Hive beach, Dorset

Hive Beach lies just to the southeast of Burton Bradstock and to seaward of the Larkfield Holiday Park. There is limited parking available here and the Hive Beach Café serves excellent family food.

Situated between Burton Beach to the northwest and Cogden Beach to the southeast, the southwest-facing Hive Beach consists of coarse golden sand and fine shingle. It looks out across Lyme Bay and runs southeast towards Chesil Beach.

Popular in high season, the beach is part of the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site, more commonly referred to as the 'Jurassic Coast'.

Swimming is possible here but please be aware of strong undercurrents.

Toilets are located next to the café and a seasonal dog ban is in force here with dogs banned from 1st May to 30th September inclusive.
