Originally known as Hareslade, Brandy Cove is a small beach just west of Caswell Bay. Parking is either at Caswell Bay or at Pyle Corner, Bishopston. From the latter access to the beach is a walk of about ½ mile down the appropriately named Brandy Cove Road.
The beach is sandy with rock-pools, backed by pebbles and flanked by low limestone cliffs. There are no facilities here, but the facilities of Caswell Bay are a 10 - 15 minute walk away along the coastal path. Dogs are allowed on the beach at all times.
There are many tales and legends associated with this beach. As the name suggests, it was, together with neighbouring Pwlldu Bay, a haven for smugglers in the 18th century who landed cargoes of tobacco and alcohol. Another legend is that of a haggard woman known as Old Moll who lived in the caves and was supposedly a witch. Also, the beach was the scene of a murder in November 1919, the victim's remains being walled up in a former lead mine at the beach, where they remained undiscovered until 1961.
