Limeslade Bay, Swansea

4.3
#6 of 7 in Beaches in Swansea
Tucked away and surrounded by rocks, Limeslade Bay offers a solid place for a waterfront hike. Though high tide covers a lot of the beach, you can visit the small, stony stretch and go for a wander, taking in the fresh sea breeze and gentle lapping of the waves against the shore. Notice the multi-layered rock shelves surrounding the bay, a testimony to the area's diverse geological heritage. You may even spot the entrance to a defunct iron mine under the steps, thought to have first seen action during the days of Roman Britain. Keep in mind that you can park near the beach, but the last stretch from the parking lot to the shore itself requires a bit of walking. Restrooms and refreshments are available on site.

  • We stayed in Limeslade overlooking this lovely bay. The lighthouse at Nab rock was across from our window with Port Talbot and Swansea visible across the water. A beautiful place to visit  more »
  • Not the prettiest of beaches, but always lots of people there and when the tide is in, there isn't that much beach!  more »
  • I always think that this bay is the starting point for glorious walks . Walk pleasantly to Langland from there to Caswell. On the return go to the Forte parlour for Icecream or afternoon Tea.  more »
