FYI... Fall Bay is NOT also known as Mewslade. Fall Bay is Fall Bay. Mewslade is Mewslade. This area of the Gower is the most ruggedly beautiful... it's well worth a visit, but be wary of slipping: the walk can be quite treacherous.

Beautiful beach......superb coastal scenery typical of Britain's first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Gower. To access the beach on foot you do need to be reasonably fit.

Breathtaking, you have to remember tide times to make the most of this beautiful place. The cliff walks are stunning too.

Beautiful quiet bay. Only accessible on foot, and not easy to get down to beach, but that's one of the pleasures!

Fall Bay at daybreak or dusk is simply amazing. It will take your breath away. View it from Lewes Castle, the cliff opposite the beach & it's even better. Love the place, quiet & undeveloped as it should be.

This is my most favourite place ever having been visiting for over 40 years. It is the most beautiful beach with great bathing, cliff jumping and sand for playing on and sun bathing!
