Three Cliffs Bay

Three Cliffs Bay is one of my favourite places on Gower and, indeed, the entire World! The sands change all the time and it looks different as the light changes and moves around the bay. When the foliage has been cut down, this is a great place to see the bay, looking down from above.

The river in the photo, Pennard Pill, flows into the sea at Three Cliffs and is notorious for causing rip tides. Following three fatalities over two years, lifeguard support has been added during the summer months as well as some school holidays. Pennard Pill starts its life at Kithen Well spring in Park Wood, or Parc le Breos, and the marshes on Fairwood Common near Swansea Airport. They meet near the Gower Heritage Centre at Parkmill before meandering between the steep cliffs of Northill Wood and Pennard Burrows. Further springs join the river near Pennard Castle before it finally flows into the sea at Three Cliffs Bay.
