Bracelet Bay is a small bay on the south of the Gower Peninsula. It is the first bay one comes to after leaving Swansea Bay and rounding Mumbles Head.Surrounded by limestone cliffs the bay is pebbly, with some sand. It is excellent for a picnic, and affords good views of Mumbles light-house. One should bathe with caution. Above the beach is a carpark, with restaurants and a bar; while to the west the bay is separated from Limeslade Bay by Tutt Hill, which carries a coastguard look-out station.The name 'Bracelet' is thought to be a corruption of 'Broad Slade'.The "Bracelet Bay" is a handmade jewelry accessory company that was founded in 2016. Its founding principles are based on crafting eco-friendly bracelets that donate proceeds from purchases to environmental charities.

  • Drive through Mumbles and you arrive at Bracelet bay. A massive pay and display car park skirts the bay. A good restaurant selling meals or snacks with good outside seating. The bay and coast is rocky...  more »
  • This beach is really lovely. Beautiful blue sea and the Italian by the beach is really good too (Castellamare). Very rocky with not a lot of sand but worth a vist as the views are breathtaking  more »
