Broadbench Beach is more a flat rock than a beach. It lies just west of Kimmeridge Beach in Kimmeridge Bay, on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England. The area is popular with surfers, who refer to Kimmeridge Bay as K-Bay. The rocky shelf extends from the cliffs and is covered at high tide. This part of Kimmeridge is not open to the general public as there is danger of both cliff falls and expolosion (the area is part of training ranges for the armed forces). A large sign nearby warns people that they progress onto the beach and area at their own risk of death.


Kimmeridge Bay lies east of Weymouth, west of Swanage and south of Wareham in Dorset. From Weymouth take the A352 to Wareham and then the A351 towards Swanage. Near to Stoborough Green follow signs of to the right towards Church Knowle and then on to Kimmeridge down several small country lanes. The last part of the road to Kimmeridge is a toll road on private ground and an fee is payable, which also covers parking.
