I came back to the area to pay my respects to my late mother whose ashes are scattered in Bracelet bay. Lovely area and so peaceful. The sun came out and it was nice to relax and soak in the atmosphere.

Nice little sandy cove bay with numerous crabbing rock pools at low tide. Stunning views across Swansea Bay to the lighthouse and beyond. Very large car park and large cafe and restaurant adjoining.
