AboutNose's Point is a double Site of Special Scientific Interest for its geology and ecology.
The sea has played a key role in the way Nose's Point looks and the plants and animals found here: the Magnesian Limestone bedrock, laid down in an ancient sea, has given rise to a rare form of grassland with unique populations of plants and animals; the dramatic and rugged coastline with its cliffs and sea stacks was carved out by the action of the waves.
There is much to explore and discover here with easy to follow paths, stunning scenery, poetry, artworks and plenty more beside to enjoy, intrigue and inspire you.
