Limpert Bay lies south-west of Breaksea Point and is overlooked by Aberthaw Power Station. The shore is of rocks and some patches of low-tide sand, backed by a storm bank of pebbles. Two squat concrete structures near the low water mark house the inlet and outlet pipes for the power station.
Access is from the village of Gileston along a narrow lane enticingly signposted "Beach". There is a (free) car park situated behind the shingle between the power station and a ruined cottage, with a guest house just behind.
