Our favourite beach on Gower. Pwlldu is one of the most secluded bays on Gower and is simply stunning. Situated at the end of the steep sided Bishopston Valley it will take approximately 45 minutes to reach. This ensures that this will always be a peaceful location for swimming, picnicking and sunbathing. A vast expanse of limestone pebbles dams the Bishopston stream.
The pebbles hint at the bays extensive quarrying past in the 19th Century. The two remaining houses were once public houses and there are the remains of many dwellings in the woods. There is golden sand at low water and many yachts and fishing boats anchor in the bay which is sheltered by the high cliffs. Sailing trips can be arranged from Swansea Maritime Quarter. The bay can be accessed via the coastal path from Caswell to the east or Southgate to the West, or by walking down the valley.
