A lovely little bay, worth a visit, though not that easy to access. Quiet and peaceful, with few facilities.

This cove can only be reached by walking down a long lane but is well worth the walk. At one time as it's name implies this was a smuggler's haunt and it easy to see why.

Came across this on a walk along from Caswell to Bishopston. Tide was up but there was still a pebbly beach to swim from. Great swimming and fascinating rocks and caves to explore via sea or on foot when the tide is out. Well worth...More

A lovely quiet picturesque cove, with great views over Swansea Bay. Depending on the time of year the walk down can be challenging, and sensible shoes are a must!
