Blue Pool Bay

[Skip to Content]
Blue Pool Bay

Blue Pool Bay (also known as Blue Pool Corner) is a secluded bay at the far western end of the Gower peninsula and is very popular with young people. At the southern end is the Three Chimneys rock arch where gold doubloons from an 18th century shipwreck have been found, but the beach's main attraction is a large natural rockpool deep enough to jump into from the rocks above.

The nearest parking is at Broughton (Grid Ref: SS416925), reached by taking Burrows Lane (straight ahead) at the mini-roundabout in Llangennith. The car park is usually free, but a fee may be charged at peak times. From here take the coast path to Bluepool, which is well signposted. Access to the shore involves negotiating a steep path and rocks at the northern end of the beach. On some low tides it is possible to walk along the shore from Broughton Bay - this being the easiest means of access. It is best to visit this beach within an hour or two of low tide as the sand is completely covered outside this time. The cliff path is rich in wildflowers in summer, particularly harebell, bloody cranesbill, rest harrow and rockrose.

There are no facilities here, but nearby Llangennith has a pub (The King's Head) which is very popular with surfers and serves food. PJ's surf shop is situated just opposite.
