A few too many dogs around for me and irresponsible dog owners. Not fair when there are young babies around wanting to play in the sand. The toilets need a refresh, the haven't been updated for years. Lovely spot but the facilities when you have to pay 3.50 to park for me should be updated a touch please.

Wonderful sand beach and a beautiful and calm walk through the valley along the little stream. Great view from the castle ruin on top of the hill.

Oxwich Bay is owned by the Penrice Estate. It costs £4.50 for access by car. The parking facilities are substantial but a bit rudimentary- one can even get a slot by the beach if you are early or lucky enough.

Stopped for a morning at Oxwich bay while staying nearby. We've been here before and like this place. A long stretch of beach makes for a nice walk. We try to time it so we can carry on round to 3 cliffs bay, accessible at low tide, also a beautiful bay. There are nice eating establishments here, a hotel, resteraunt... More

Utterly beautiful beach on wide bay. Sea is blue and the scenery stunning. There is parking there and some facilities, plus trails above the beach offering beautiful views.

This beach is absolutely gorgeous! I honestly think it's one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been on, we were spoilt with the weather as it was a lovely hot sunny day but I think this beach would be beautiful in any season, worth a visit!
