Beaches and Bays

Mumbles' location at the point where Swansea Bay and Gower Peninsula meet mean that the village is literally surrounded by stunning beaches. Spend a day at iconic Langland Bay where you can surf, play tennis and enjoy tasty food from the beachside cafes. A little further along the coast is Caswell, another beautiful spot for a family day out. Close to the lighthouse are the less visited but equally picturesque arcs of sand known as Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bays. With numerous more beaches just a short drive away on Gower, it's fair to say that Mumbles is something of a beach lovers' paradise.

The sandy 6-mile curve of Swansea bay lines the city with opportunity for sunning, sandcastle-building and fishing. Any position around the Bay affords a spectacular view, either of towards Mumbles Point or the city, and on a clear day even Devon can be seen across the Bristol channel.
