Three Cliffs Bay. UK’s Hidden Gem.

I’ve never felt closer to heaven than when I was standing at the edge of the cliff at Three Cliffs Bay in Swansea and staring out to the never ending sea with the glare of the white light from the sun. Okay cheesiness over, but seriously this place is AMAZING.
Wanting a break from uni, my friend and I made the trip to Swansea for a bit of an escape for the weekend. After wandering the city centre we quickly discovered there wasn’t much to the town and panicked just a little thinking we would be bored AF for the rest of the weekend. But, after a little bit of research we found that the Three Cliffs Bay beach wasn’t too far. And so a taxi ride later we found ourselves lost in the Gower Peninsula.

     

This coastline is truly a hidden gem in the UK. After a bit of gentle hiking of the cliffs (I was not prepared with my ballet flats) you reach the edge and can’t look away. Apart from the greenland and cliffs theres also a wide beach down at the bottom that we had to ourselves that day. The water so clear and blue you wouldn’t believe you were still in the UK and not in some Greek island. After running around, writing our names in the sand like the five year olds we are we made our way back up to leave (and catch that view just one more time).

    These do make it a popular spot during the summer, but walk east, towards Tor Bay and Three Cliffs, and the crowds give way to walkers, twichers and cyclists making the most of the glorious expanse of hard-packed sand.
