Brandy Cove - Glamorgan

© Nick Andrews and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

This secluded little cove on the Gower Peninsula is tucked away just to the west of Caswell Bay. Access is either by walking around the steep path from Caswell or along the valley from the village of Bishopston.

At higher tides Brandy Cove is mostly rocks and pebbles, however, as the tide drops away a reasonable are of sand is exposed.

The name comes from the days of smuggling when various contraband (such as brandy) was landed here and stowed away in the nearby caves. These caves were at one time apparently the haunt of a witch, although that could just have been a convenient cover for the smuggling activity.
