Been a few times, lots of parking, lovely views, play areas for children, A big climbing 'boat' so kids playing pirates to their hearts content while over looking the sea. Eaterie there has a cafe and a restaurant side, modern, clean, good choice. Just go for an ice-cream and look at the view of the Mumbles!

A quick visit as it was raining and getting dark but good photo opportunites for dramatic rain and wave lashed scenery. Did not visit the restaurant this time but a romantic looking venue for an Italian restaurantand unexpected. Play area provided for children. Takes a while and a little challenging to get a photograph of the lighthouse complete with light... More

We did it from the wrong angle though (from Bracelet bay) there are steep rocks there on the way to the... More

Bracelet Bay is just around the corner from Mumbles and has a large pay and display car park, which at busy times is too small for the number of people needing a space. Good views across the bay towards the Devon Coast. The restaurant (public toilets too) also serves take away ice cream - delicious! Beach small but pretty.

A great place to relax, the headland looks over the bay, there are plenty of places to sit and admire the views also a playground for the children.There is a cafe near by, also the Fortes cafe is only a few minutes walk away and is a lot cheaper for ice cream than the main cafe.

Sand, rock pools and caves! Great for exploring and adventures. Check when the tide comes in, lots of rocks to clamber over!

A little windy but the view was well worth it. Plenty of visitors. Cafe there if required. No parking charges
