My wife and I visit this beach with our dog. We start with a beach walk from the hotel all the way to where a clear water river cuts across the beach, then we head inland to a footbridge but turn left just before it, to return to the start by walking through a national nature reserve. Perfect.

Our campsite backed into this beach but was quite a step walk. If only we had have explored the other end and found this flat car park with no walk to the beach

Very wide beach which is never too busy but enjoyed by many over the summer months in particular. Great place for a beach picnic and making sand castles

Great beach for the family where long stretch of beach with ample parking. Could do with more kiosks / small shops to sell your, food, etc. Only drawback is the narrow lanes leading to this location can be very busy and frustrating

Always lovely to walk to Three Cliffs Bay when the tide is out which is about three miles each way You can also walk toThree Cliffs via the valley route from the Gower National Museum which was great. Regards Gary Saunders

Love any part of Gower coast. This bay is beautiful. However, parking there is a nightmare and expensive. I've never understood the marquee that seems to be a permanent fixture in the hotel garden-looks wrong without a wedding. The woodland and the little church are worth a visit but other than that... Visit early in the morning and don't bother... More
