Situated on the treasured Gower Peninsula and backed by dramatic cliffs, Bracelet Bay is a small rocky bay where sand is exposed as the tide drops. There are lots of rock pools to explore and from Mumbles lighthouse the view stretches across the Bristol Channel. You can swim here but be careful of the rocks and strong rip currents. There is a restaurant, bar and ice cream parlour nearby and you are pretty close to Mumbles Hill Nature Reserve.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.
In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
