Three Cliffs Bay Beach

Three Cliffs Bay is a large sandy beach, no surprise in that it takes its name from the three cliffs that jut out into the sea.

The bay is split into individual beaches backed by cliffs that as the tide goes out join up to create a large expanse of sand that includes Oxwich Bay beach to the west.

You will often see climbers on the 20m high limestone cliffs.

The bay has no facilities with the closest parking is at Southgate or Penmaen and then a walk along the coast path.
