Oxwich Bay

Oxwich Bay is a 2 mile long sandy beach backed by the dunes and nature reserves of Oxwich Burrows and Nicholaston Burrows. The western end is the most popular, and the further east you go, the quieter it gets. At low tide it's possible to walk along the shore to Three Cliffs Bay and Pobbles Bay.

An attended car park is situated just behind the beach and facilities include a slipway, toilets, drinking water and a beach cafe. The beach is very sheltered, and good for swimming, paddleboarding and kayaking. Refreshments and watersports tuiton are available from the car park. On the opposite side of the road from the car park is a general store / off licence / cafe.

Dogs are allowed at all times. Surf conditions can be good in winter when other beaches are too big or blown out, and the best times are an hour or two preceding the high tide.
