Torbay Crawley Woods Beach (Tor Bay)

The rural, secluded Tor Bay lies about 5 miles to the west of Swansea Bay and is flanked by spectacular rugged coastal cliffs. This stunning, sandy beach has a remote feel to it and offers wonderful views.
There is a car park in Penmaen and from here a scramble along footpaths leads down to the beach. Because the beach is not particularly easy to access, it offers a tranquil setting, perfect for those seeking a bit of solitude and great views.
It is used by kayakers, canoeists and surfers. Visitors need to be aware of strong rip tides along this stretch of the coast.
