Three Cliffs Bay beach offers a wilder experience. Picture a spectacular shoreline of sand dunes, salt marsh and of course, the signature three limestone cliffs. A particularly photogenic part of the Gower Coast Path and a great spot to stop for a picnic.

Stay safe!

This is one of our most beautiful beaches, but nature can be wild too – watch out for strong tides and currents at all times. Because of this, we advise against swimming or participating in watersports at Three Cliffs Bay.
