Penmaen Burrows has a number of important archaeological remains and its position between Three Cliffs Bay and Oxwich Bay makes it a very scenic walk.
Nicholaston Burrows, situated behind the north end of Oxwich Beach, hosts interesting dune flora such as bloody cranesbill, pyramidal orchids and a number of lichen species.
This is a really varied area consisting of sand dunes, cliffs and woodland. The views (on a clear day) are impressive across the sweeping expanse of Oxwich Beach and in the other direction towards the picturesque Three Cliffs Bay
The National Trust acquired both Penmaen Burrows and Nicholaston Burrows in 1967. These fascinating places continue to be managed by the National Trust to conserve their value for wildlife and our heritage. It is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
