Gower Beaches

The Gower offers a dramatic and varied landscape. The numerous beautiful bays of golden sand and secluded coves are linked by a coastal path allowing you to explore the entire coast of the peninsular. Sandy beaches backed by dunes and dramatic limestone cliffs are found on South and West Gower. To the North of the peninsular the landscape changes to salt marshes and there are many nature reserves providing a bird watcher's paradise. Please be aware that during the summer months some beaches have a dog ban in place.

The following beaches are listed in order as you move around the coast from Swansea Bay to Whitford Sands at the mouth of the Loughor Estuary in the north.

Bracelet Bay | Gower Getaways

Bracelet Bay

Bracelet Bay is the first limestone bay as you move around the coast from Swansea bay. The bay has the dramatic backdrop of Mumbles Head with its lighthouse. Often used by families the bay is accessible from a large car park. Close by is a children's playground, cafe and restaurant.

Brandy Cove

Brandy Cove, as the name suggests, was linked to smuggling in the 18th Century and is a well worth visiting. It's generally accessed via the cliff path from Caswell or a short walk along the footpath from Bishopston. This means that throughout the summer, when other beaches are very busy, Brandy Cove is a great place to escape the crowds and enjoy the piece and tranquility of Gower.

Oxwich Bay

In 2007 The Travel Magazine named Oxwich beach the most beautiful in Britain, describing it as "magnificent and unspoilt" and as a "great place for adults and children to explore". There is a wide range of habitats with the beach backed by salt marshes, woodland and sand dunes. Oxwich is a wonderful beach for swimming and water sports. Its position facing South East means that the water is particularly calm and perfectly suited for windsurfing, kayaking, waterskiing and power boating, all of which is on offer on this popular beach.

Pobbles is a little cove which, although appearing part of Three Cliffs Bay, at low water becomes separated by the tide.

A lovely walk takes you across the cliff tops to Southgate where there is a welcoming cafe open all year round.

Pwlldu Bay | Gower Getaways

Pwlldu Bay

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.

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. Read More
