Given the general shape, size, and habitat, these most likely belong to either the Family Trochidae, or the family Littorinidae.  There are several species from each family which live in this kind of habitat, in this geographical area.  If you brought any of these home, you could soak one in bleach solution and perhaps remove enough encrustation to reveal some details of its structure, color, etc.
