map Three Cliffs Bay is one of the most photographed places on the peninsula, with great tracts of golden sand beneath towering cliffs culminating in three linked peaks. The heavily folded limestone strata of the cliffs is punctured by an archway leading to the quiet Pobbles Beach, which appears to be an extension of Three Cliffs Bay until the tide rises and the cliffs separate the two.

“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
I spent so many days here with the family ... it is so lovely to be back,” she said.

Katherine Jenkins

Three Cliffs Bay is one of Gower’s most picturesque beaches and it’s not hard to see why, the valley leading down to the sea complete with castle, the salt marshes and the sand dunes, and the three cliffs themselves. The cliffs are popular with climbers, and what a location, you can actually walk underneath the cliffs through an archway. There are stepping stones to cross the river on the Penmaen side of the bay (west), but make sure you can get back.

WARNING: Do not swim near or in Three Cliffs Bay at high tide as there can be strong rip currents.
