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.
