Pobbles Bay

A secluded little cove on the eastern side of Three Cliffs Bay. On lower tides the beach is joined up with the wider bay but as the tide comes in Pobbles becomes separated by the limestone cliffs to either side.

This is one of the most beautiful areas on the Gower and unsurprisingly quite popular. It does involve a bit of effort to get to Pobbles Bay with the nearest parking in the village of Southgate just over half a mile away. Not only does this keep the crowds down it allows you to take in the great views as you make your way down.

Swimming at Pobbles is relatively safe at low and incoming tides but should be avoided around high tide when there are strong rip currents.
