Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay

 

Bracelet Bay and Limeslade Bay

 

Bracelet Bay is just around the corner from Mumbles Head and holds some significant beachside awards. It holds a Blue Flag Award and the Seaside Award. A Blue Flag Award is awarded to beaches internationally that have high levels of cleanliness, safety and high standard amenities. The Seaside Award assures visitors that they are guaranteed to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed stretch of coastline.

Bracelet Bay is also a SSSI (Site of Specific Scientific Interest) mainly for the limestone geology that surrounds it and a small fossilised coral reef. The rock at Bracelet Bay dates back 290 millions years.

Bracelet Bay is also home to a fascinating and beautiful cave which begs to be explored, if you can find it....but you must be wary of the tides.

Limeslade Bay is the next bay around from Bracelet. It is mostly rocky and pebbley with little sand, the Bay holds the Rural Seaside Award and the Green Coast Award.

Just a few metres north of Limeslade Bay is the start of the Gower coast path and leads onto Rotherslade and Langland Bay.

Coasteering

Coasteering

Coasteering is an activity ran by many providers around the Welsh coast, most popularily on Gower and in Pembrokeshire. The activity consists of jumping, plunging, traversing, climbing, swimming, cave exploration and marine life watching, it is a great activity for all age groups!

Instructors who take coasteering are very knowledgeable of the sea and how it works, we know where to go and where not to go to make sure that a fantastic time is had by all in the safest possible way!

When you come Coasteering with us you will be provided with a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet!

And you will need to bring your swimsuit (to go underneath the wetsuit), a spare pair of strong shoes to wear in the sea, some shorts to go over your wetsuit to avoid bum scuffs! Also always good to remember a towel too :)

Yesterday we took the Cardiff Lions surfing down Gower on Llangennith Beach!! They were staying down Gower for the weekend camping in a local site and visiting a local rugby team! They were great fun in the sea and many of them were catching waves by the end of the session! The weather was just perfect for it, our hottest day of the year so far (lets hope for many more).

Well done to all the guys who got involved, I hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
