Oxwich Bay Dog Walk: Information
Shops - including ice cream shops near the hotel side of the beach in summer.
Very large car park which is nearly always pretty empty when I go. Private fee charged - normally £2.00 but seems to vary upwards a bit in the peak season or peak times of day, while on quiet days the booth is unmanned and you can park for free. Just take a note of the sign announcing what time at night they lock the gates or you will be locked in overnight. I notice they are very accurate about locking the barriers, probably to avoid overnight campers staying here for free.
Toilets at the hotel end of the beach (sometimes closed off-peak). There is another set of toilets (always open I find) just off the lane between the hotel and the beach - make your way to where there is a pedestrian gate through the stone wall separating beach from hotel, just before you get on to the lane that leads to the hotel and on towards Oxwich Point.
Places to eat & drink - loads of possible picnic areas.
Suitable for water sports with ramped access to the beach and a slipway in to the sea for boats.
Tip: Go on a weekday around lunch time or in the morning if you are holidaying in Wales and prefer peace and quiet. Weekends and weekday evenings when it is sunny are best avoided, otherwise you will get caught up in the traffic as everyone and his dog head for the sandy coastal bays of the Gower. I like it when there are very few people on the beach which, most times I go, there are (very few).
