Bracelet Bay

Bracelet Bay, a small bay on the south of the Gower Peninsula, is the first small bay you come to after leaving Swansea Bay and rounding Mumbles Head. It is home to the Coastguard Station and the Mumbles Lighthouse, with views across the Bristol Channel to Devon on a clear day. The beach has a mix of sand, pebbles and rock pools, and there are excellent refreshment facilities and children’s play area available nearby. Above the beach is a carpark, with restaurants and a bar. In addition to holding the coveted Blue Flag Award, Bracelet Bay is a registered site of special geological interest and is close to Mumbles Hill Nature Reserve, so there is lots to do on a day out! The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months. to the west the bay is separated from Limeslade Bay by Tutt Hill, which carries a coastguard look-out station.
