Three Cliffs Bay gets its name from the three major cliffs that look out over the beach. The bay is located on the southern side of the Gower coastline and is considered one of the finest coastal areas in Wales.
Three Cliff Bay is one of the most photographed areas of Gower and is also commonly known as Three Cliffs. Three Cliffs Bay, or Three Cliffs, has some spectacular views and there are some lovely walks over the steep sand dunes. Horses can often be seen being ridden and it is also a popular location for climbers. Note that Pobbles Beach to the East and Tor Bay to the West are both accessible from Three Cliffs Beach when the tide is low.
