There are spectacular views along the coast, from the cliffs above Pobbles, across to Three Cliffs Bay and towards Oxwich. There is a short steep descent to the beach. At low water you can access Three Cliffs across the sand, but beware of the incoming tide, you won't be stranded, just have a long walk back.

You should not atempt to swim in Three Cliffs Bay at high water as there are dangerous currents near the river. If you want to swim do so at low water, when it is safe.

Follow the stream up the valley, you will see Pennard Castle up above you, there are stepping stones to cross the stream.
