Slade Bay (The Sands)
Slade beach, or the Sands as it is also known, sits just beyond the end of Port Eynon beach. In fact on a super low tide you can actually get here with dry feet from the Horton end of Port Eynon.
As the name suggests there is a good sized stretch of sand here, although this depends to a large extent on the state of the tide. To each side of the beach are extensive flat rocks that are home to numerous rock pools, whist to the rear are low cliffs.
Access to the beach isn’t terribly straightforward as there is no obvious route down from the coast path between Horton and Oxwich Bay. This means the beach is usually pretty quiet, a fact that made it a favourite with smugglers in years gone by.
