Bracelet Bay (above) is the first beach west of Mumbles Point and consists of limestone rocks and pebbles with some sand. Access to the shore is down a steep path. Other features of the beach include a fossilized coral reef at the centre of the bay, and a small low-tide cave to the east. Swimming is not recommended here due to a strong current flowing between the islands just offshore. The beach looks out towards Mumbles Point with its lighthouse.
Facilities include a large P&D car park overlooking the beach, a bar / restaurant with outside seating, toilets and a shop selling ice-creams. A dog ban operates from May to September inclusive and lifeguards patrol mid-July until early September. The beach is served by a frequent bus service from Swansea.
Just around the point is Mumbles Beach, which is a small sandy beach backed by a concrete sea wall. Access is either by a flight of concrete steps from Mumbles Pier, or at low tide by walking around the point from Bracelet Bay.
