Bracelet Bay and Mumbles Lighthouse

Book Tickets Online


Wales Coast Awards - Green Coast Award 2024

Bracelet Bay is the first small limestone bay after the vast expanse of Swansea Bay, while to the west the bay is separated from Limeslade Bay by Tutt Hill. The beach is excellent for a picnic, and affords good views of Mumbles lighthouse.

Access to the beach is from a large car park high above the beach and via a steep path which is unsuitable for wheelchair users. The local cafes, ice cream bar and restaurants are a popular draw for beach visitors. They all enjoy a spectacular location above the beach at the end of the car park, offering stunning views of the beach, Swansea Bay and the nearby lighthouse. The name Bracelet is thought to be a corruption of Broad Slade.

Toilets, refreshments, parking; dogs not allowed May to end September.

No lifeguard service.
