Wild and beautiful are two words often used to describe Three Cliffs Bay beach. The surrounding nature offers picturesque views, but swimming is not always recommended due to the strong tides and currents. However, the landscape is marvelous, making Three Cliffs Bay the perfect spot for a picnic or simply to snap photos of the views. Soft sand dunes, a salt marsh and the signature three limestone cliffs makes this one of the most photogenic spots on the Gower Coast Path.
Car hire and public transportation can both take you to Three Cliffs Bay from Cardiff. However, it’s important to remember that the parking area and buses stop about 400 metres from the beach, so you’ll want to prepare for a walk in moderately difficult terrain to reach this gorgeous, natural beach. Cardiff airport is 1.5-hour-long drive from Three Cliffs Bay, but travelers can also fly to Wales from popular cities like London, Glasgow, Dublin, Toronto, Belfast and many more.
