Rock Pooling

There are few things more magical for children than staring into the glassy surface of a rock pool and watching the creatures living in it go about their daily lives. The Somerset coast, with its huge tidal range, offers some great opportunities for exploring the worlds just below the water. Amazingly, reefs at some of the beaches are all the work of the industrious Honeycomb Worm!

You don’t even need a net to move aside the weed and play I-Spy for small edible crabs, hermit crabs that carry their homes on their backs and anemones looking like exotic flowers. Guaranteed to absorb inquisitive youngsters for hours, these natural resources really are to be treasured.
