Overview

Bracelet Bay is home to the Coastguard Station and the Mumbles Lighthouse, with views across the Bristol Channel to Devon on a clear day. The beach has a mix of sand, pebbles and rock pools, and there are excellent refreshment facilities and children’s play area available nearby. In addition to holding the coveted Blue Flag Award (2016), Bracelet Bay is a registered site of special geological interest and is close to Mumbles Hill Nature Reserve, so there is lots to do on a day out! The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months.

Always check the weather and local conditions before going in the sea, as some Gower beaches experience strong tides or currents.

Further Information
To attain a Blue Flag, a beach must reach the highest recommended European bathing water standards and the beach must be clean, well managed and promote sound environmental management.

The Blue Flag Campaign looks at resort beaches and marinas. The Campaign has been running since 1987 and is recognised in 22 countries.
