Mewslade Bay - Glamorgan

© Jeremy Bolwell and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

Mewslade Bay is a beautiful, sandy beach on the remote Gower Peninsula near to the famous Worm's Head. It is backed by high grassy cliffs and dominated by the 70-metre high rocks of Thurba Head.

From the beach here there are views across the bay to Fall Bay beach and Tears Point. At high tide this beach, which can be difficult to access, is completely submerged, so it is best to check tidal tables before visiting.

There are no facilities here.

The beach is used by experienced surfers, and there are no restrictions on walking dogs.
