  • Still a relatively quiet and undiscovered treasure it is just a short drive from Swansea, Cardiff and the M4.
  • The red limestone and shale cliffs with their unique rock formations are embedded with fossils exposed by the tides which have to be seen to be believed.
  • Glorious beaches - at times wide and sandy, then rocky and rugged - great for surfing, swimming, windsurfing, canoeing, rock pooling and horse riding.
  • Most beaches welcome dogs all year round but on some in restricted areas only during summer months. See beach signs.
