Limeslade Bay, Swansea

(25+ reviews on the web)
Water Body Beach
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. Put Limeslade Bay into our Swansea itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
