What’s it like?

A small but picturesque cove tucked away on the west side of Mumbles head, just a 20 minute drive from Parc-Le-Breos B&B. You won’t find much sand here until the tide drops right down but its popular with swimmers (though avoid swimming on the headland between the islands - there are strong rips here). It is lifeguarded in the summer months, and it’s a great place for rock pooling and fishing. There is a large car park at the head of the bay along with restaurants, bars and an ice-cream parlour. The name ‘Bracelet’ is thought to be a corruption of ‘Broad Slade’.


OK for bathing but avoid the headland next to the islands.


Great fishing spot, both the right and left hand side of the bay itself and the headland. Either spinning or plugging on a incoming tide can yield good bass, while float-fished crab might tempt a triggerfish. Avoid on windy days as the bay catches the weather.


Not a surfing beach.
