Three Cliffs Bay offers iconic scenery, beautiful views and an altogether more ‘wild’ Gower experience.
The spectacular shoreline offers sand dunes and salt marsh set between the three limestone cliffs for which this spot is best known. This beach is particularly stunning and is a photographer’s favourite.
This beach has lifeguards but keep it to paddling, there are strong tides and currents at all times and it’s a beach to sit and enjoy the scenery rather than swim or or do watersports.
The carpark is 400m from the beach, but access may take you across rough ground, so it isn’t a beach for the very young or disabled visitors, sadly. They can, however, enjoy the views from stunning Pennard Castle on top of the cliffs.
Toilets can be found in the nearby Three Cliffs Holiday Park, and refreshments are available at Parkmill (home to the Gower Heritage Centre) or Pennard.
However, the lack of access means that dogs are allowed on the beach all year, and the beach itself is rarely crowded, so you can enjoy the stunning setting in peace – a perfect beach for grown ups who want to get away from it all.
