Alum Bay

  • 5 resources

Alum Bay is the location of a classic sequence of upper Paleocene and Eocene beds of soft sands and clays. The strata in the main section of the bay are near vertical and the sands are coloured due to oxidised iron compounds formed under different conditions. A stunning view of the Needles rock formation is available from Alum Bay, along with optional boat trips from the pier.

Such is the variety of colour in the sands that they were used in Victorian times for marmotinto, a popular artform.
