West Cross Beach is found at the western end of Swansea Bay. The beach here is sandy and at low tide, the whole of the bay becomes a wide expanse of sand and mudflats.

A mixed cycle/pedestrian path runs alongside the beach all around the bay. Places to eat and shops can be found in Mumbles, and all the amenities of Swansea are a short car journey away.
