SS4885 : Slade Bay (The Sands)

taken 8 years ago, near to Oxwich Green, Swansea/Abertawe, Great Britain

Slade Bay (The Sands)
Slade Bay (The Sands)
Slade Bay, otherwise known as 'The Sands', is a small stretch of sand surrounded by rocks. This area is surrounded by grazing fields at the top and cliffs that drop from the coastal path straight down onto the beach.

It is possible to access this beach by walking from Slade village down through the grazing fields and connecting to the coastal path. It is also possible to walk here from the same coastal path that follows around from Oxwich on the west or Horton from the east. You will have to climb down from the coastal path and over some rocks to access the beach.

Compared to other beaches in Gower, Slade is perhaps one of the most inaccessible but due to this reason, it also makes it one of the quieter.
