Three Cliffs Bay, Gower - The Beautiful Beaches Of WalesThree Cliffs Bay sits on the southern coast of the Gower Peninsula near Swansea, South Wales. The Gower was the first area in the UK to be designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and when you visit, you’ll understand why. The bay takes its name from the 3 limestone cliffs which jut out into the bay. There is no road access to Three Cliffs Bay but there are a number of options in the area where you can park and walk. On this trip, I parked in the National Trust carpark in the village of Southgate and walked along the Wales coastal path to the bay itself. If you walk upriver (Pennard Pill) from the bay you get to Pennard Castle. Like most castles in the area, it was built by the Normans in the 12th century. The castles and the small settlement which surrounded was finally abandoned in the 1500s due to the encroachment of the surrounding sand dunes. Although, the beach is beautiful because of the cliffs and the river swimming isn’t recommended due to the strong currents. If you do want to swim then nearby Oxwich Bay is a good option. ‘Three Cliffs Bay On The Gower Peninsula, Wales’ - Filmed January 2020 SOME OTHER VIDEO SUGGESTIONS: Places To See In Wales: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvLoC9ZcTe_Qysb-ZGss8B6Ajq_JwRTIJ Visiting The UK Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvLoC9ZcTe_TikGGMYrIfRt39Mg7vC4fF Visiting Wales Videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvLoC9ZcTe_QJvsCZ0GXWS9JpeuFtizt_ MERCH FlyDriveExplore MERCH “Yes, We are tourists T-Shirts”: https://teespring.com/stores/fly-drive-explore EQUIPMENT Wonder what cameras and kit we use, please check our UK Amazon Page: https://www.amazon.co.uk/shop/flydriveexplore USA Amazon Page: https://www.amazon.com/shop/flydriveexplore More Travel Videos Added Weekly - Not All Vloggers Say ‘HiGuys!!!!!!’ Couples travel, hotels, flight reviews, city breaks, luxury travel and various other travel-related stuff.
