Three Cliffs Bay
Three Cliffs Bay in Swansea Bay is great destination for any walker on the Gower Peninsula. The Gower Peninsula measures just twenty by five miles (roughly 32 by eight kilometres). They do say that good things come in small packages, and the Gower Peninsula certainly is one. In fact it was Britain’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Other AONBs include the Cotswolds AONB and West Penwith AONB in Cornwall where Pedn Vounder beach and the Logan Rock are found.
For Katherine Jenkins, Welsh mezzo-soprano, Three Cliffs Bay is Britain’s best view: “Three Cliffs is so intimate and cosy. It gives me the feeling of being hugged. This view has everything – it has the sea, it has the cliffs and the marshes.” Three Cliffs Bay is one of Britain’s best beaches and offers a wilder experience. Great for walking, stopping for a picnic or dusting the camera off with potential for some fantastic seascape shots.
Three Cliffs Bay can be reached on a lovely coastal circular walk from Southgate, which takes in some of the finest limestone grassland in Wales and the ruins of Pennard Castle. Pennard Castle sits high on a hill above Three Cliffs Bay and as well as being a point of interest in its own right, offers marvellous views over Three Cliffs Bay. The dramatic and beautiful castle was established by the First Earl of Warwick in the 12th century.
If you are visiting Three Cliffs Bay for a day, there is National Trust parking at Southgate, a short walk the coast. The car park postcode is SA3 2DH, there is a nearby coffee shop and tea room for post walk treats. For a longer stay, you are spoilt for choice. There luxury cottages with stunning views over the Gower Countryside, caravan and camping facilities and even a glamour camping or ‘glamping’ option in the luxury 25 square metre bell tents available at the Three Cliffs Bay campsite.
