Oxwich Bay has plenty of sand, sea and space for everyone, even on the hottest Summer day.

The beach is popular with paddlers, bathers and many high speed boats and jet skis as the car park is directly on the beach front. There doesn’t appear to be much control over the boats and jet skis, so due care must be taken on a busy day, if going into the sea.

Facilities include:

  • shops
  • car park (private fee charged)
  • toilets
  • places to eat & drink
  • phone
  • suitable for water sports
  • dogs must be kept on a lead when children are about

Oxwich is a lovely beach backing onto sand dunes, but if its peace and quiet that you are looking for, don’t go to the Western end of Oxwich on a busy day. Try Nicholaston Burrows, just to the east as an alternative.

Dogs must be kept on a lead at the Oxwich end of the bay when children are in the vicinity.

The Oxwich Bay Hotel stands at the Western end of the beach and provides good food, snacks, meals and refreshments.

The footpath leads West through the woods, past the church of St Illtyd and over Oxwich Point to Slade and The Sands at Horton.

Tour the Gower Coastline:
