Beyond the pier are two small, sheltered beaches, Bracelet Bay and Limeslade. From Bracelet Bay there are fine views of the 18th-century lighthouse and 19th-century fort on the outer islet. In clear conditions, you can see the coast of Devon from rugged Limeslade, which is perhaps more smugglers’ cove than beach. Between the two, you can pick up the well-maintained, switchback coastal footpath, which continues along the edge of increasingly wild, wave-battered cliffs for about a mile to the glorious Langland Bay, lined with traditional beach huts, and onwards to Caswell Bay. Both are excellent, clean beaches with plenty of sand and rock pools, traditional seaside amenities and substantial car parks. Langland also has tennis courts. When the waves are up at either Langland or Caswell, you will probably witness some spectacular surfing at all times of year. Sailing and other water sports are also much in evidence all around Mumbles.
