Three Cliffs Bay
This stunning secluded bay is one of the most photographed locations on Gower and was recently featured on the television programme Britain's Favourite View. Wonderful golden sands backed on one side by high dunes which are perfect for sunbathing. A river snakes across the beach which can be crossed by a series of stepping stones. It is not possible to cross these at high water so care must be taken not to get cut off by the tide, although there are alternative routes out of the valley. The river provides endless entertainment for children and bathing is generally safe although strong currents can occur where the river meets the sea. The Three Cliffs themselves are very popular with rock climbers and there is a large archway leading through the cliff connecting to Pobbles Beach. These beaches are connected at low water but divided as the tide rises. The beach can be reached from several directions on foot, but our favourite is to walk down the valley from the car park at Parkmill which takes 30 - 40 minutes. As you walk down the valley you will see Pennard Castle high above you backed by Penard Golf Course which has spectacular views over the bay.
