“Fantastic beach and views”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

One of my favourite places, as you can park right by the beach. (not free) but worth it to spend a few hours there. The sand dunes behind the beach have the most beautiful flowers, and it is a nature walk

“Lovely beach”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Take a picnic! Beach was lovely and sandy with some shale and rock pools. There are also walks to Oxwich castle.

Oxwich Hotel very pricey and pretty much average pub grub.

“Delightful”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Maybe Oxwich is my favourite Bay on Gower. Treat yourself to a stay at the Oxwich Bay Hotel, it even has it's own cottages that you can stay at-great for pets. The bay is breathtaking and the marsh behind the dunes is full of wildlfe. At the far end of the dunes just before the pill, look out for adder tracks on the rear dune slopes! If feeling energetic walk to Three Cliffs but check tides.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The bay is amazing and looks so different in the early morning and later in the day. The surrounding woodland and marshland are superb walking areas
